This t-shirt was given to me by my brother, who apparently doesn't know what size to buy for himself.

It was just a big, black, over-sized shirt with a "From Autumn to Ashes" design on it.
I haven't done much sewing before, so I am surprise at the way it turned out.
Hooray!




I simply cut off the sleeves, and cut straight undeneath the collar.


Next I sewed up the sides (to close up the gap where the sleeves were) and hemmed the top edge.
Then added some straps made of checkered fabric that tie around the neck.


Close-up on straps.


Lastly, I threw on both a red and checkered heart on the back of the shirt.
(the red stripe is actually one of my belts.)

How do you like it?  Kiss

Wow, I love it.  Grin  You did an amazing job.
 I have a tee that I can't bear to throw away, but it has terrible frilly sleeves.  Thanks for the inspiration!!

I envy you. I can never get halter tops to fit me decently. What's the secret?  Sad
