I've just finished it! Here goes... my 5 piece of clothing! Wujuuuuuu

Made from scratch and some chain... super easy!





Hope you like it Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Mini tutorial:

You will need:
Stretch fabric
Thread
Chain (optional)

This is the pattern:



And the steps:

1. Cut the pattern pieces on the fabric.
2. Pleat (I don't know if that's the correct word) the rectangle in the center.
3. Pin the pleated rectangle to the front of the tube top.



4. Sew the tube top (front with rectangle and back)as you usually do.
5. Sew in the strap.

And this should be the final result (only a lot better... lol), at least the front part.



Oh! And you can add the chain were you stitched the pleats.
