Columbus, Ohio, ...
The first project that I have been able to both complete AND let you all know about! I gave in to the surge of guy’s shirt remakes that I have seen and gave it a go. I’m trying to find time to get a pic with it actually on my body…says something about how busy I am…something not so good. I relied heavily on the Craftstylish make-over notes, but made changes to the straps and used french seams. I had a 2x shirt to work with so I had lots of fabric to make pretty seams with. I also added ties at the side seams to give a more fitted profile. I am rather busty so I don’t wear empire waists and “tent -like” garments – unless I actually am pregnant and want to look that way!
