This turned out to be a fail. You learn something new every time you make something right? Well, I learned plenty! I found this project in Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-shirt. I used a bikini I already had as a pattern, but it still turned out too small. My seams are too big, so they flip out when worn. Seeing as how this cost me next to nothing to make, I might try it again.

Material Notes

cotton t-shirt, liner cotton t-shirt

    I think they look great. Try trimming the seams right up to the stitching. Jersey doesn’t fray and I always trim after stitching.

    Have you seen my technique – Stitching Jersey without an Overlocker
