Have you all been over to Miss Ashley's blog?
It's called Make It and Love It.
And it is FABULOUS!
Ashley has great ideas and good tutorials!
Whether you are an expert sewer or a novice, you will enjoy her site.
Last week, Ashley did a great tutorial for this wonderful fall dress.
Well, I have had this t-shirt (that I love) that was silly-short on my tall, nearly 6 foot body...
And I had a light-bulb moment...
AuBrynne doesn't have to get the shirt refashioned for her.
You could do this for yourself!
It would be cute. AND coordinate with her little gray dress you just made...
So, this is the Gray, very high necked, crew t-shirt.
Side note: Tall, large-framed, curvy girls generally should try and steer clear of the crew neck line.
It makes for a good amount of real estate... Not the most flattering...
Anyways, the shirt:
Ok. So, I whipped up the dress as Miss Ashley described, with a few alterations.
And given that I am SIGNIFICANTLY curvy, and I am fairly certain, Miss Ashley is not,
there were a few adjustments I needed to make.
Before I could start, I had to take the neck-line out and make it bigger.
More of a scoop.
Then, the belt area needed to be secured, because it kept riding up.
Second, the belt in the back didn't work as well because I used a remnant of another piece of fabric and didn't have enough to make a tube... It didn't work as well.
So, I took it apart and re-worked things and came up with this.
It works a bit better for my curvy-er shape, as the waist-line is a bit more pulled in and defined.
And it stays put.
Anyways, I am loving this dress! It's pretty comfy. And just funky enough for me...
