Thrifty bustle back tshirt

After seeing this on stitchless tv, was inspired to try it. The basic T-shirt has been upcycled into a bustle back T-shirt. I love it and will make another. It uses fabric scraps making this a thrifty project.

      Thank you Ellen. I learn to do this from stitchless TV. Now I will go invade my moms closet for more t-shirts to upcycled. I really like how fun it is to make!

      Thank you Chula! Its a stash buster for sure, plus you can use fabric left over from bigger projects.
