I got a cheap black t-shirt and some cherry-print material and made this:



using this tutorial: http://www.livejournal.com/community/t_shirt_surgery/3402993.html  The button isn't as orange as it looks in the picture... it's just red.

I actually ended up figuring the collar out myself... the directions are odd and didn't work out.  But even now the collar ends up crooked so I just anchored it down a bit where I wanted things.  The lapels are uneven, but oh well.  I'll probably fix that sometime soon.  This was my first time making puffed sleeves, and it was strangely a lot of fun.

Some more pics:






In that one you can sorta see my accidental fake piping that didn't turn out too badly.

Wow, it's so awesome... I like the "accidental fake piping" I can't see the tutorial either. Would you consider posting one?

Thanks!

Thanks everyone!

Your shirt turned really well! Have you been sewing long?

I've known how to sew and use a machine since I was a little kid, but I haven't done a whole lot of machine sewing until this summer.  This is probably the biggest project I've ever done since the dress I made in 5th grade (with the help of my mom!), so I'm really happy that it turned out so well!

Wow, it's so awesome... I like the "accidental fake piping" I can't see the tutorial either. Would you consider posting one?

The piping was a complete screw-up and accident, which explains the name.  Hard to explain; I lined stuff on the wrong side and such... but I like it better this way too.  Thanks!

As for the tute, I just happen to have it saved on my computer.  Mwahahaha.  It may be hard to read, but here it is:


The collar directions are a bit off, but I'll try to work out a collar tute sometime later today.  Thanks so much everyone!
