I wanted to contribute to the MOT sew-a-long hosted by Faye so I did what I could... serging and hand sewing. I used T-shirt Makeovers by the Sistahs of Harlem.
I made two tops from this book... a one shoulder tank and ruffled tank. Here are the book versions of the tops.
The ruffled tank took some hand sewing, but it wasn't too bad. The instructions are pretty straight forward.
I'm wearing the one-shoulder tank with a long-sleeve, which I don't think I'll pair together when I actually wear the tank. Instead of doing the "ribbon" I cut-off the bottom of the shirt and serged it to the top of shirt.
I enjoyed refashioning my t-shirts. I think I'll try a few of the other tops in the book as well. Overall, the book has a lot of great ideas, but I don't think I could pull off a lot of the tops... some of them are backless and/or very cropped. I like some of the ideas, but I'll have to re-work them so they are less skin revealing...
*Please ignore the white spots on my head in the photos... I'm not sure what that's from and I didn't want to edit it.
