pink sweatshop shirt

burdastyle member ceregana made the most awesomest t-shirts and a little while ago she posted a how-to on her blog. so this is my try. i learned a lot while making this shirt and then the next one will be much better i’m sure. my husband took the pictures, i wish he would have told me my bra was cutting in my back and the shirt wasn’t lying right in the front, but i couldn’t have done it without him (well, it would have been much harder, i sure am not living up to my member name). next time i’ll do the gathering more in the middle of the front. i used the lydia pattern as the basis and the shoulders were waaaay to wide for me and the whole shirt ended up huge so i took it in a few times. the shirt is not quite as good as i imagined it but it came out better than i thought it would while sewing it

    cool! that’s why they are called sweatshop – you need a lot of them.
