Description

i REALLY like this pattern. i’ve found that when i make the shirt in cotton, i need to cut the pattern a little bit larger in the bust. but when using these old tshirts, the size 36 pattern fits perfectly. with the black & white shirt, the original tshirt was a men’s L, but it wasn’t wide enough so i added the white. but for the green & yellow shirt, the green was a men’s XL and the cut was perfect.

2 other great things about this shirt – it totally covers boob/armpit fat and dubs well as a maternity shirt (the black & white one is a gift for a friend who just made it to week 30!)

one day soon i’ll have to make this into a dress!

      on themedusa’s page, there’s the “get instructions” tab underneath the main photo, as well as the “get it” tab off to the right. the “get instructions” tab only downloads the braid directions for me, but i was able to get the pattern from the “get it” tab. when you go to your purchase history, click on “print pattern at home” and you’re in business!
