I bought the most beautiful floral printed fabric a few months ago.  But between school, going to France and Disneyland I hadn't had the time to make anything with it. Until yesterday when I finally decided to cut into it.
Now it isn't anything special, but I like the clothes that you can add to.
Anyways, without further adieu;

That was painless!  Quick and easy just the way I like it.
Action shots:

Hope you like it.

glad I saw this, I need to make a bunch of shirts before I go off to school...you know...to evade the laundry demons.

The laundry room in my dorm last year was really flippin' creepy, so nobody besta say anything about me being too old for this :p

Anyhoo. thanks a lot for a tute without the begging or groveling. Grin

have you made any others, or are you just oh so diligent and taking pics as you went? Cheesy

oh, and you KNOW you want to take more action shots.

Ah I'm so glad I could help!
A friend of mine, when I told her that I was going to make it, asked for me to take process pics and I so obediently followed.  Wink

And it just so happens dear Hyrulehippie that I had taken more action shots before you even used your mind powers  Grin

I like to make funny faces when I take pictures of my clothes hee Tongue
It tells a little story too!
"Posey Posey Pose."
"What?  There's a bee on my shirt?"
"Oh no!"
"It's a-right, all gone now" [even though I love bees haha. the reson it's there in the first place]

Keep the bee! Keep the bee!  It looks so right on a floral shirt!  And I love the side split.

Cute!  Quick and easy!  I think I will make some little ones for my daughter.

How wonderful that you guys like it!
If you make them post some pictures so I can see; if you like I can draw the pattern so it's a bit easier to follow.

Some sage wisdom for you guys though, the straps I made are about three inches.  That wouldn't be a problem except I made them twenty inches long [before i sewed them on] and so they slip off my shoulders.  So I say try try try them on so you don't get slippy sleeves! [sung like row row your boat haha].
