i've been working on this top. the tutorial is awesome and really easy. the problem is that as much as i want to wear this top and like this top on me--i don't. i look really big in it. or like i'm pregnant. or both. i know i'm not a skinny minny anymore but i do still have a waist. and this shirt does not show any waist on me at all! plus it makes me look at least 40 lbs heavier that i really am. i really don't want to wear anything that adds weight to me! the bottom isn't finished because i'm trying to figure out if i can somehow "fix" this top to flatter my body more. i've tried to add a belt with it. didn't really like that. i've thought about adding a line of shirring under the bust. maybe add a band to the bottom?.... i just don't know. i'm taking it to my sewing class tomorrow in hopes that i will come away with a plan to make this shirt more flattering on me.
(oh yes. as always i'm relying on a 5 yr old for the photos!)
