I bought an awesome shirt from the thrift store last year for a $0.25.  It was obviously made by someone, and I absolutely adore it.  Perhaps I will edit this post later with a picture of it so that all may admire it.  Done!  It's made of the coolest yellow with apples material.  Anyway, I recently decided to try my hand at making clothes.  The pants for my kids - great experience, the shorts for myself - definitely still under construction... so I wanted to try something for myself that would be very elementary.  I used my favorite summer shirt as a guide and picked some material that I had used for a carrier when my son was a baby.  I mean, I used the actual pouch for material, so I didn't have enough to make the shirt as long as I wanted.  I decided to accent with a bit of scrap material that used to be a sheet.  I had planned to put a couple pockets up above the white part, but once I got the white on there, I thought it would look weird.  So I just put another piece of the white on top of the first piece to make an apron like pocket.  Now that it's done, I'm wondering if the white piece was a complete mistake.  One minute I like it, and the next I feel that it's out of place.  Any thoughts?

The inspiration shirt!

Taken by my son... hence the odd angle and me not having a head.

Taken by me... hence the odd angle and the shirt looking deformed.

With the right tools, few things are impossible.

Wow, this is nice... and I'm not just saying that because you have sex with me.

I like it!  and I think the white part looks just fine because the main part has white in it.  Smiley
