this t-shirt was pretty annoying. the size of it (xl, which i couldn't even cut a small top out of because it was a girl shirt) & the graphic on it wouldn't work for my first few ideas, so i had to improvise. in the end i gave it contrasting side-panels with corset lacing, a striped, sweetheart band at the top (which i sewed myself, because i can't find striped knit fabric where i live) & a layered skirt.





this top was mostly an excuse to use that striped fabric i got off ebay a while ago, but didn't get much chance to use :p i think it goes really well with the lyrics on the shirt. i gave it a yoke, puffed sleeves, peter pan collar & a large pouch with smallish openings. i topped it off with a bow at the collar. which i often do :p i love bows.





even though it didn't turn out exactly like i wanted it to, i still love this top so very much. i wanted a super ruffly clown collar, but i miscalculated how long it had to be (next time i know i'll have to use at least four times the length of the neck opening!) & had already serged it when i saw how ruffly it was not. disappointing, but it still looks okay, i guess. what do you think? it is a bit rufflier than it appears in the pictures though.
i also gave it flutter sleeves with lace, military tabs (with sailor buttons!) & a striped band at the bottom. after making it ten sizes smaller :p & another polka dot bow to top it off!

These are awesome! I really like how you matched the fabric to the lyrics on the Muse shirt. Very clever!
