It's as much fun to scare as to be scared.

Very much inspired by the shirts in this thread! I did this a little differently. I cut up the sides and around the sleeves, but kept the shoulder seams and neck in place. Then princessed the hell out of it (using a bodice pattern from another project I'd done). The arm holes are just edged with more of the same leopard knit ($4/yd!). I loved this shirt before, but now, well...!

Has anyone mentioned yet how hilarious it is that, in one of your photos, your sewing machine is on the bathroom counter?

Seriously, though, I've been looking for ways to modify t-shirts in ways that make sense for a while now. After I made a full-on ballgown with a fairly typical princess bodice, I realized that was just the pattern to use for your technique here. The first one I did was literally about 2 hours before the Buzzcocks show -- used a woven plaid for the sides and some random black tee. Didn't even bother to finish out the hem and the arm holes. But MAN, the difference in how the fit of the shirt LOOKED? Enormous. Princess seams FTW. (And still got my favorite question: "Did you make that?" How much do you love being asked that?)

After I did this second one, I realized another of the cool things about this is that you can use wovens or knits for your side panels -- the "Tractor" tee uses a fairly stretchy knit, as you know cuz you have it! So, really, ANY fabric you've got, what, a half-yard of becomes the perfect detail!

This is going to be my stash-bustin', kickin'-around summer wardrobe staple for 2010, I'm pretty sure.

LOL you are the only one who noticed that! On my facebook page my sister pointed it out and we laughed our arses off.

I do LOVE telling people that i made something! The look on their face is so worth the effort sometimes! "you MADE that?! "   Tongue

I must say I agree that princess seams FTW when it comes to curvy girls. I just did a dress and a top in princess and LOVe the way the bring the waistline in and then flair around the hips. Good stuff. Can't wait to see your destash!
