It grew too big for me. Much too big. But I liked the pattern so much--look at those delightful, firework-y bursts of white!--that I saved and saved it, thinking I must someday do something with it.
Yesterday, I did something. Before work I took that gathered bottom of the shirt and turned it into the top of a skirt. This was very exciting. I used the sleeves to give it a bit more length, at which point I had the following:
[I'm shy about the pictures, so I'm posting the awkward ones ...]
Not too bad, eh? I rather liked how it turned out. I may have gone a bit crazy adding color, but I'm having way too much fun to tone things down. The skirt is actually just the top piece. I also made the little lacey petticoat type skirt over the weekend, which is what's underneath here. I've been wearing it under skirts and dresses that are just a bit on the short side. I wish I had one in every color. Might have to make more ...
I also figured out how to take in my own t-shirts that are too big. That was an exciting moment as well.
Here's a close-up of the bursting firework-y coral-y pattern:
And here, if you'll forgive the extreme close-up, is the waistband. See how nicely that shirt bottom turned into a skirt top? Also, the colorssssss. Oh man, I'm in love.
