I saw an Alexander McQueen top in a shop in Manchester and I really liked it. It was on the cover of a magazine last week - I have a photo somewhere, but I can't find it at the mo Roll Eyes .  Anyway, this is my homage:



It's a t shirt recon, really!

What do you think?!

Edit: Here's the picture I was talking about:

Thank you!  I put an old t shirt on my mannequin, and drew round where I wanted to cut (fairly low on the boobs), then I cut around, and hemmed the cut edge

I measured around the new neck hole, and got a piece of cotton this length, folded it in half and hemmed it.

I sewed the cotton band to the inside of the neck of the t shirt, then punched thpse metal circle things in the a hammer (I never remomber what they're called!)

I realise this isn't the best explanation in the world, but I hope it helps!  Smiley

Oh my goodness what a lovely thing to say!

Girlypirate: Do you mean what does it look like on? or do you mean is it comfortable?  Either way - I haven't worn it out yet because it's a bit cold!!!
