I forgot about this top I made as it was quite some time ago, but I was going through some photos and laughed when I found these.



I handpainted the graphic on using fabric paint on jersey material which I misted with glitter. On the spinach I used fabric paint that puffs up when you iron it to give it a 3D effect, but you can't tell well in the photo. I found this popeye fabric at a goodwill and LOTS of it, I believe I have at least a couple yards stashed away and have no clue what to do with it now. I wish I hadnt taken a photo with the waist at the smallest measure because it overlaped, but the size was kind of a one size fits most.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

 I made this without a pattern using only the sewing bust as my guide, but here's an awesome gal who offers a tutorial similar though. http://www.etsy.com/shop/patriciavalery?section_id=7402314
