I made this last night with a lot of twisting and pinning and Silk Screening!
I believe this is 53% cotton, and there's lycra and something else in the fabric.. if you can tell, the sleeves are not quite sewn in yet! How do you finish off a stretch fabric's neckline?
I promise this looks better in real life. okay, no.. my painting skills a little rusty!
This is my dad and I, he is (actually)abnormally young looking, and I didn't know how to paint him any older!
I've been loving my July semester, even though I have a few sewing projects here and there, I am loving the 4-5 day weekends! Been loving the sun, and enjoy the night life of Toronto! Thus haven't been sleeping much, Now how's this to sleep in!
so I got a Paintlounge tee size Large and revamped it!
Tee to a Dress DIY.
1. find a tank top/ sleeveless dress and lay it on the tee as a template
2. Cut the sleeves off at a 45 degree angle and gather it, (baste stitch and pull it tight together)-sew up the garment, right side to right side. attach/ ease the sleeves

"I've got a streak of what you'd call cheapness. I don't know where I get it but it's - oh, things like this and bright colors and gaudy vulgarity. I seem to belong here. These people could appreciate me and take me for granted, and these men would fall in love with me and admire me, whereas the clever men I meet would just analyze me and tell me I'm this because of this or that because of that." -the beautiful and the damned.
by beer bong I mean beer pong, did I mention I'm turning 19 in 4 days?!?!?!
here is the first Blouse I ever made (in fashion fabric), Polyester Chiffon, Mandarin Collar, Separate Placket, lace trimming and crystal buttons!
chiffon fabric and separate placket should never be in the same sentence.
