Here's the first one! Couldn't get her to do an action shot, but I think it looked great on her.

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/210663_03Jun11_IMG_1408.JPG

The one thing I did differently.... was I sewed the buttons shut. She never wore this shirt much before because it always needed ironing, and neither of us wanted to bother. Now I'm happy to report this shirt will get worn without needing ironing! Hooray!

Oh, I also cheated and used my serger instead of rolled hems.  Tongue

Definitely going to do some more. I've been trying to think of some style changes to do on some of them so they're not all the same. I want to try shirring something, so I might work in a shirred waist on one.
It is so cute! Wow, I'm really excited that I could help! Good plan on the buttons, I would likely have done that too if I had not needed the ability to check on my bandages from the front when I first designed it Smiley

I WISH I had been able to serge it! Mine was busted for quite a while when I was making these.

I can't wait to see what else you come up with! I have a giant smile on my face right now Cheesy

Akkhima, It looks good....Keep up the good work. Wink

Smashu, you are so thoughtful taking a pix & giving me confidence to move forward. I'm thinking if you are not a teacher by profession, you were in another life. I now know what I'm going to be doing tomorrow & I thank you from the bottom of my heart! I'm very picky with my shirts and this fits right in with my style.  Grin

This looks like it would be great for a pregnant woman like myself too! I've been looking for some fun tank tops to wear and shirts. I might play with this since I have 2 shirts of my hubbies that he shrunk a bit too much to wear himself.
Thanks for sharing! My only tip would be that some of the pictures are a bit hard for me to see. I think due to the light background? I love the shirt you picked to make the project with and hope you continue to make more tuts since this one is so thorough!

This is really cute!  My sewing skills aren't that great, but I was still able to make this in about an hour.  Thanks for posting it!

I think you are right, this would probably be great for a pregnant lady! I'm sorry you are having problems with the photos, I had to move them over to the craftster photo host and the resolution went down a bit. Not sure if that is the reason but I apologize! Hopefully it isn't too much of a hassle Smiley
