I’ve had this shirt of my boyfriend’s for awhile now, hoping I’d find something cute to make it into. It wasn’t exactly an old shirt, per say, but he had it and didn’t want to wear it. It’s a pretty nice shirt, though: Black with red and pink pinstripes. I had some motivation + inspiration the other day, and came up with this:

Basically, all I did was re-size it, make it sleave-less, changed the buttons from a neutral grey-clear to red, and added darts to help shape it. One of the darts came out a bit wonky, and since I pinned them while wearing the shirt, they’re not symetrical, so I guess I need some more practice.

The funny pucker on the back is a pin; after putting it on the manaquin, I realised that the back was HORRIBLY uneven. I’ll have to go back and fix that.

Also this week:

Wishing Star Update: 750. I’m almost out of paper. Not sure if I’ll attempt to cut strips out myself (since I have a goal now, maybe it won’t be so bad?), or making another trip to Chinatown ( I ran out of mochi cakes anyway)
