Ok  I had to jump on this one. I'm a full figure girl so I used 2 pillow cases that I had made to match a quilt that I  made long before I ever met my husband. I have no use for it now because my husband isn't too into the whole cowgirl thing. So now he can just be seen with me wearing it. hhahahaha. I did add a few darts here and there. But I am totally excited about the way it looks, I think I will wear it to my step-daughter's soccer game tomorrow.

I love how vibrant your shirt is HairstylinMama.  Great job!

Taloola, I think this shirt would look great in a stretchy fabric.  I bought a similar shirt in stretch fabric, except the band around the top goes from like 1" in one corner to maybe 3" in the other corner (across the chest asymmetrically) which gives it a different look.  Also, the straps are elastic and have a bit of fabric as "flutter" sleeves.  I think it would be cute to try it like this.  If I get around to making one I'll be sure to post pics.

Here's a rough rough sketch of what I mean:

Ha, I'm a newbie seamstress too Smiley!  I actually haven't sewn with stretch yet.  School is keeping me rediculously busy, but if I can get around to making this one, I'll definately try to make a tutorial, or at least explain the process.  I think it might require a few more "pattern" pieces.
