I’ve finished my version of the Batwing top. This was the sketch that inspired the top (http://madebytrisha.blogspot.com/2010/04/ahhh-two-headed-monster.html). I was thrilled when I found the Batwing on Burdastyle to help me make it.
The biggest different is that I used a black sheer fabric with no stretch! The armbands work, but are a little tight. If you make this with a fabric that does not stretch, I recommend making the armbands larger. You can always make them tighter, if you want.
I also added elastic to the bottom. I like this look!
Although it turned out remarkably like my original sketch, you can tell by the look on my face that I’m not entirely sure about this shirt. It’s very different from what I normally wear, but I do like it… I like the fact that it’s spicy, but covered at the same time.
