Description

I bought these shoes at a thrift store in a small town for $0.90and I didn’t have anything to match. I did, however, find some trim that was the same bright blue, and I had some material that I snatched on a 1$/yard clearance at a fancy fabric store.
Result: A 3$ shirt detailed with throw-outs.

The front turned out well, but the back is puffy. How do I fix that?

    You maybe should check this out: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/all-in-one-shirt-body?image=105371 I think that would be great solution, though it would never have occurred to me by myself! Adding elastic band- clever idea :)

    VERY CUTE! I’m still learning about darts, but I think some well placed darts at the back might reduce the puffiness. Or else, throw a belt on and use the puffiness as a design feature!! :)
