I made this halter top a while ago but it needed something, so I got out some paint and went to town!  Smiley

Hurray! Smiley

Oh, thank you!  Smiley  I did not use a pattern, actually, which always means I change my mind halfway through about what it's going to look like, and I create massive waste of fabric, but I just sized the waist part to another shirt I had (this is of course stretchy fabric).  For the chest area, I actually held a piece of the fabric up to my chest to see how much gathering I wanted (fabric folded in half), cut there, and stitched 'er on.  The straps were an afterthought, but of course when you put it on, they come all the way to the creases in my shoulders; looks kinda 50s!  Smiley

Here's the easy trick on gathering!  The chest part is folded in half, so it's double thickness.  I stitched a seam right down the center of the front, then one seam on either side of it, about a quarter of an inch away.  So now you have two little tube sort of things, which I threaded grosgrain ribbon through, up one side, down the other.  It ties off inside the shirt at the bottom of the chest, and it's stitched too.  I used a wider grosgrain ribbon folded in half, which makes it VERY sturdy and gives that nice gathering effect you so love!  Smiley  I hope that made sense!

Thank you, thank you, kind people!  Smiley  I don't know if you can tell, but the purple is a metallic fabric paint; very pretty color!

When you said potato stamps I thought o_O...however, I loveeeeeeeeee how yours turned out. I love the metalicy color on the black. Great job! Looks like something youd find at urban outfitters.
