      Yes it is actually. I used the Burda size chart to make the additional sizes. I had a tracing paper one for myself I had been using for years. I’m like a 32" bust so that one was about a size 34 on the Burda chart so I just sized it up based on that.

      I hope you like the pattern. Let me know if you have any questions and I’d love to see the finished product!

      thanks for the info now I know I was using a size too large this whole time lol :) Do you know if its possible to use this for a woven if cut on the bias? thanks again.-KC

      Sorry, I didn’t mean to mark inappropriate, I thought it was a reply button!

      I’m not sure about using a woven. It’s fairly close fitting. It might work if you went a size up. I think you’d need the extra room just to get it on. A little invisible zipper on the side might help. I would also Stay stitch the areas where the lace go or use some kind of stabilizing element because it might shift around on the bias.
      But, I haven’t tried, so make a muslin first, or use an inexpensive fabric. I’d like to hear about how it works out.

      actually I just attempted to find the bias and all that and I think I’ll hold off till I gain some more sewing experience
      lol but I am going to attempt add some ease and then add some button closures down the front, I’ll try to post pictures when I’m finished
      Thank for all the suggestions!

    Love the recycling of t-shirts! I went through a whole phase about 8 years ago where I was constantly making skirts out of t-shirts. Glad you posted this, there are too many t-shirts with unrealized potentially out there.
