A top for ME!!!!!!!

Finally I have TRIED to sew something for ME!!!!! I made this top yesterday out of some stretch material I have had in the cupboard for ages (and I mean ages like 3 years) that I picked up at Vinnies I think it was around $4.00 and there is enough left to make another top........ I had a little trouble with the ribbing around the neck and am not happy with it. See how it is puckered at the bottom, it is ment to sit nice and straight. Oh well I will make another one day....

And me modelling it.... OMG I look like I am still preg...I didn't realise I looked that bad, I had better do something about that!!!!!! How embarrassing........
And of course the sleeves are to long for my short arms but that's the story of my life.......

How good is that top. You underestimate yourself.

Looks pretty good to me. The pucker doesn't look as bad as you think, to me it looks like it is giving the top a bit of shape and is actually better than if it were stretched across the chest. The stripes appear to be horizontal, and I know that is an achievement with such a narrow stripe in t-shirt fabric. Sleeves too long is better than sleeves too short (so long as they aren't falling down over your hands), you could always shorten them anyway (just don't overdo it).

I wouldn't say you TRIED. I would say you DID! As Jennifer said, you underestimate yourself.
