I am madly in love with Anthropologie.  Unfortunately, since I'm a student, I can't afford to buy my whole wardrobe there.  Instead, I often go and drool over clothes while I figure out how they're made.  This top was inspired by the Torsade Tee: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?subCategoryId=CLOTHES-KNITSTEES-DRAPED&id=913798&catId=CLOTHES-KNITSTEES&pushId=CLOTHES-KNITSTEES&popId=CLOTHES&sortProperties=&navCount=45&navAction=top&fromCategoryPage=true&selectedProductSize=&selectedProductSize1=&color=005&colorName=DARK GREY&isSubcategory=true&isProduct=true&isBigImage=&templateType=

Ugh, that's long.  How do I get rid of all that?

Anyway.  I used one of my brother's old Tshirts and cut off the arms, the neckline, and a couple inches off the bottom. I took in the sides so it fit.  Then I made tubing out of the material from the bottom, and fed cotton clothesline through it.  I twisted the cording together and attached it to the shirt with a tiny whipstitch.  I still have to finish the arms and hem...I haven't decided how I'm going to do that yet.  Thanks for sticking with me this long...on to pictures!

 



Thanks for looking!

This is darling.  I far prefer it to the original!  I can understand why you might want to do something more with the sleeves, but I think it looks great as is.

I think this looks even more interesting than the anthropologie shirt!

Nice!  Smiley  I always check Anthropologie for ideas too.  LOVE them but cannot afford them!  ...Even if I could, now I know how to sew, I wouldn't be able to get myself to pay that price!!

I also like this better than the original!  Flutter cap sleeves might be a pretty way to finish it.  Great work!!
