Brooklyn, New Yo...
made out of knit t-shirt fabric (yellow), the front blue panel was made out of a blue w/ red stripe cotton fabric that I pintucked and sewed down (using the burdastyle how-to!). Around the bust part I made it sturdier by sewing the yellow knit to a heavier red and cream striped cotton fabric (also used on sides as extension- i ran out of yellow). The back is the same blue/red fabric as the front panel. The buttons I covered with scraps of the yellow knit. And the straps are made of this stretchy brown lace trim.
