I was inspired to make this yesterday out of a t-shirt I spilled some sauce on and left a stain. The saying is really cute so don't worry, I did get a new one. However, this one has been in my stash for a while, just waiting to be re-made! My friend has something like this and I'm sure there's stuff at ROSS just like it, but this was only the price of the T-shirt and my time. Also I've not seen a tutorial for something like this (with sleeves and all) online anywhere, so I thought I would share Cheesy Overall it only took about 15 minutes! I think it would be a really cute thing to wear over cute Spring/Summer tops Smiley
Now for the pics!:






Tutorial

Materials:
A T-shirt that fits (or is a little bigger)
Scissors (optional: seam ripper)
Sewing machine or needle and thread

Step 1:

Lay your T-shirt flat and measure across the line A-B. Make sure that it is the same length as line C-D and line E-F.

Step 2:

Cut along line A-B through both sides of the T-shirt.
Cut along lines C-D and E-F through only the front part and around the back neckline.
you should have a piece that looks like this:

I'm saving it for somebody's baby's bib Smiley lol

Step 3:
(sorry there aren't better pictures for the final steps...)

Seam rip (or cut) up the seam from A-A' and B-B'. I prefer seam ripping because I needed as much fabric as I could salvage.

Step 4: (using picture from step 3)
Place right sides of one half of the bottom of the shirt line A-B to right sides of line C-D, and sew. Do the same for line E-F.

Step 5:
Celebrate! you're done Smiley Now cut off any loose threads and even up the lines and you have yourself a cute vest. Go out and flaunt it!


Thanks so much for looking! This is my first semi-in-depth tutorial and I'd appreciate some feedback. Smiley Also, if you have any questions, I'd be glad to answer them.
C&C= Love. Happy Valentine's day!!!

Very cute! The tutorial seems super easy to follow. When I find a t-shirt, I'm going to try it! Smiley

And I agree, that is going to be a super adorable bib!

Cute. I have some shirts I'm going to try this with. I love "I'm not short I'm fun sized." I get picked on a lot for being short.
