These are two t-shirts that fell into my hands and were too awesome to use as PJ's:



This one was generously donated by my boyfriend, when I was disappointed to find out that Heavy Corner doesn't carry girl-sized merchandise. It started out as a guy's XL and I didn't even think about fitting it, I just cut it open and cut out the t-shirt pieces.



I used a t-shirt that already fitted me to draw the pattern, and then sewed the elastic lace around the top edge to make the stripes.



This one started out as a men's M t-shirt, so I could fit it in instead of starting from scratch like with the other one Cheesy I decided to make it into a sleeveless shirt, and although I used a t-shirt i had as reference, I kind of winged it... it doesn't show much while you wear it, tho, unless you're posing absolutely straight and still (which I don't usually do Tongue).

And just the t-shirts laid out:





Let me know what you think! and if you have any good tips on making a sleeveless top, do share Tongue

I can tell Cheesy it's a great movie! I was psyched when I found the t-shirt.
