I really like longer shirts, something you can have sticking out under a jumper or a jacket to add a bit of extra colour around the middle. That being said though, I dont really want to add length to all of my shirts cause I like versatility as well. So I have decided to create some "tummy warmers" (or detachable shirt extension or ultra short mini or whatever you want to call it). These will sit under my shirt, just around my middle and be long enough to just cover my butt in the back. Mostly I think I will wear them with jeans and pants but I guess they would look good with skirts and leggings as well.

Anyway I had some bits of the shirts I used to make this project a little while ago, so I thought I would stitch a whole bunch of pieces together in a patchwork style to make my first tummy warmer.

Here is the result:

A bit haphazard I guess, but I like that kind of look  Tongue

Cute! That's a really good idea, actually, because I love that look, too, and have been trying to figure out how to do it without just buying/making really long shirts Smiley
