My first project. Made it about 3 years ago. Ah, how time goes by. <3

Stats
Started Life As:
 - Size M Men's T-Shirt
Is Now:


A halter top. If I had put a shelf bra in it, it would be great for exercising...

Tutorial / Pattern Used:
"T-bird" from Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt by Megan Nicolay. However, I added elastic to the back and hemmed the whole thing. I wanted to have it for the long term, after all.

What I Learned:
 - How to use a sewing machine
 - How to do a straight stitch
 - How to insert an elastic band
 - How to do a hem
