This started out as a massive t-shirt dress. It didn't have a size but the bust was around 47" with LOTS of positive ease on a 36" bust!



I was going to turn it into either a regular tee or tank, or possibly a dress, but my husband liked this idea better  Grin



- haha! Spartacus...

Sorry for the bra showing! Embarrassed Kind of unavoidable, so I'll most likely be layering this with a cami or just wearing it over a swimsuit. But man, does this feel comfy! It'll be great in the summer. I decided to keep the finished edges on the sleeves and collar but the bottom is a raw hem.

It would have been a sin to hide your figure under that baggy old t-shirt dress!!!  The color is lovely on you and the new item is so sexy and modern!  No wonder hubby loves it! Wink

Great re-do!

Thanks guys!!  Cheesy This shirt seemed so confusing at first, so I'm really happy it was a success. There was a minor misshap when I was cutting the center slits but I was able to fix it and it's not noticeable, Yay!  Smiley

Love this! It looks great on you and I personally would not worry about the bra, but maybe that's just me  Grin I have been wanting to try this... and I think I am now inspired to do so!  Cheesy
