The Ugly Shirt

By ari - March 27, 2012

This just got uglier and uglier the more I stitched it. And then I fell in love with it, hard!

I used some strange stretch fabric I was saving for a different project but decided I needed something soon for my ever-expanding belly/boobs. It's slightly sheer, but you can't tell when it's on. The fabric stretches and has this rough bumps of white over it. I think I used the wrong side as the outside, but I liked it better.

I cut slits into the front and wove strips of grey fleece fabric through it in a basket-weave sort of thing. Then I stitched a heart around the weaving and trimmed around the top but snipped up the bottom of the heart to make a fringe.

It's so ridiculous I love it.

And it's so dang comfortable.

It even has a cute back. I actually took photos for a tutorial for this hideous thing, do you want it?

Entering this top into Rae's Springt Top Sewalong too!
