My mom-in-law bought me this fab when the in-laws took a trip to France about a year ago. Unfortunately, it's, like, a million sizes too small for me....so back to the wardrobe it went. It wasn't until today I looked at it and thought I really I need to do something with it.

Luckily, I got some leopard print stretchy fabric today and added two side panels and a thick top trim to hold the 'girls' in.

Lyrca is a bee-otch to work with - the amount of pins to keep the hem down was ridiculous. :| I might add some straps later, as I might use it a gig top....my band's name is Le Chat Noir, after all. Wink -x-

That's all there is and there ain't no more....
I craft, therefore I am.

I like the way you salvaged the tshirt and made it wearable.  Great idea.  Now I don't have to pass up too small tees with interesting graphics.

I bought that same shirt in Paris about 7 years ago!
