County Durham, O...
This is a top I made myself out of a men’s shirt. It was intended to just give me something to wear to a pirate theme party I went to last weekend, but it’s turned out to be the most comfortable top EVER.
I’m on maternity leave from work now and I’d been squeezing myself into an array of maternity and non-maternity wear since I was determined not to buy anything new for the last couple of weeks. Being able to dress casually full time now (and even just in my PJs if I like) is SUCH a relief!
Anyhow… I took lots of pictures, so a tutorial for making a top like this is up on my blog . It took no time at all!! and I’ve even gone out and bought a couple more shirts (from charity shops – of course!) so I can make some more and perhaps make a dress modification (did I mention it’s the most comfortable thing ever?)
