I didn't have enough of this striped fabric left over to make a full t-shirt and I really wanted to play with the stripes. I love clothes that mix the directions of the stripes. I didn't have enough fabric to really do much except piece things together to make a tube with straps. The top is a little too big and the bottom much too small for me, but for someone with a more even waist to hip ratio, the tank would fit better. I brought the top up enough (made the straps short enough) to cover my normal bra, but that means the part under the arm is a bit too high. Oh, well. At least the fabric is a garment instead of scraps sitting in the box. I'm sure I will find a way to wear this under something so that only the top half shows. I don't know anyone to whom to give it.
Hi! I live in Virginia. My mom taught me to sew. I think I started at 4 or 5 by sewing buttons onto a handkerchief, but don't trust my memory. That was a long time ago. As a teenager, I was more interested in completing projects than learning good sewing techniques. Now, I am teaching myself some things I missed. My sewing interests are in learning to make alterations to and draft patterns to fit my petite 4'11" tall, 32" chest, 45" hip body.
