So, my boyfriend went out of town last weekend for two days.  Besides having a Sex and the City Season 2 Marathon, and shopping at the "Everything $5.99 store"- this is what I did:







I was so excited but had no one to tell, so and impromptu photo session was in order:



Thinkin about it, this is probably the 3rd thing I've made from scratch without a pattern.  I'm still really new to all this. I copied the chest area from a shirt I already had, then winged the rest.  I know it's not perfect but I like it!  and thank god for not having to hem it.  It took me about 2-3 hours to finish it, and I took a few breaks.
It's a little tight in the stomach area so maybe I can wear it with a little jacket or sweater.  Comments?
