The bottom layer looks like several layers of tulle, it almost looks like they were cut out like a circle skirt and gathered and then attached to a thick elastic waistband.  You could find some light cotton material that matches the tulle to create a cotton underskirt and then put a few layers of tulle to make it poofy.  I don't know what to say about the top though.

The sash photo made me laugh when I first saw it, only because it accentuated my tummy bulge  Cheesy.  I do like the idea of that though.  Or the other idea of white under the bust to break the shirt up, I could use the bottom white part and stick it to the middle for something to break up the shirt.  I just need to wade through my pile of WIPs and retrieve it!
24  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Plex! on: March 06, 2012 08:53:36 PM
So after reading this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=293030.0
I decided I wanted to make a Plex t-shirt for my sons second birthday.  I know it isn't perfect (the eyes are crooked and wonky) but I am quite proud of it!  I hope my son enjoys wearing it as much as I did making it for him!

Also I made the shirt itself from a scrap t-shirt that i've had since highschool.

25  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Making stuffies from a child's drawing. on: February 28, 2012 07:17:52 AM
Hello out there, my friend posted a link on my Facebook wall today and asked if I knew how to make stuffed toys out of a child's drawing.  Alas I do not, but my first thought was "craftster people would".  I have read a few of this persons blog posts and it looks like they want to make one off toys of drawings that a child has drawn. If there is anyone out there that might be interested, this is the blog http://childsown.wordpress.com/#!/page/1
This blogger is in Canada I believe.  I don't know if they pay or what sort of compensation there might be For it (I only read a few blog posts). If anyone out there is interEsted I just wanted to throw it out there

I'm so glad I'm not the only person in the world who constantly pushes their sleeves up, 3/4 rules!  Love the sweater btw.

Thank you both! I feel that by reducing my closet but still keeping the clothes, I will get in less trouble from the husband for taking over his space!

Slits might not be a bad idea but i don't have much fabric to work with unfortunately. I was planning on saving it to wear when Ive lost more weight, sort of as a treat to keep me motivated and keep me going.  But yes I will lose the band at the bottom, I was hoping it would work but it just doesn't.

After I failed miserably trying to make a New Look pattern with this material, I tore it apart and tried to make it a different outfit.  While it isn't exactly what I wanted, it isn't horrid either.  My problem is, I feel like there is something not right about it.  At the moment it's too tight (I'm working on weight loss), but I tried adding a white band to the bottom which I feel is too big, and too long for this top.
Any suggestions on what I could do to fix this top? I'm wondering if I should lose the white strip at the bottom and just hem the shirt as it is.

*edit* I Finally got around to my UFO pile for this shirt.  I decided to ditch the white band and neckband, I traded the white for grey and hemmed the top to a less "in between" length.  I saw some awesome suggestions, but at the end of the day, a band around the middle didn't look as good as I thought it would.  I turned the V-neck to the back because it didn't sit right on me and I think at the end of the day, it looks better than if I had left it as it was.
