Sorry for the crappy pics, they make me look even wider than I really am. Shocked

You can't tell in the pic, but this shirt had a belt that was sewn into it that reminded me of a bandeau top which inspired me to do this.

BEFORE:



AFTER (with a black t-shirt cut off at the armpits):


I wish I would have made it a little longer.
C&C's welcome.  I'm actually working on a couple of other projects with the rest of the shirt.  I'm making a shrug with the top and sewing the bottom ruffle onto the bottom of a turquoise tank.  I'll post those when I'm done, IF they turn out ok.  lol

Much better now. You really spotted the potential in that.

Antidigger said just what I was thinking.  I bet it's waaay more comfortable too.

I have more fabric left from the original shirt.  How do you think it would look with a ruffle at the bottom to give it some length?  I'm not sure how that will look, but as much as I love it, I still haven't worn it because it's shorter than I normally wear.  Any other suggestions to lengthen it?  I may just go find a longer black t-shirt and start all over. Undecided
