Now what can I make with it? I've always wanted to do some sort of flowy top like this scarf top with kimono sleeve. However, I had an idea that I wanted to do it with a rectangular shape. Drawing inspirations from the scarf top, I created the triangle shirt!
Because I'm not a true a seamstress and I'm very lazy, I didn't take the time to iron the fabric. However, this fabric is very forgiving so I got away with it.
- The neck hole (just a slit) about 11 inches wide.
- I measured the widest part of my body which came out to be my butt, divided it in half and made it the width of the body of the shirt.
- The distance from the top of my shoulder to about 3" below my armpit determined the size of the arm openings.
Originally, I was just going to cut one cut from bottom of the arm opening straight down but that gave me too much sleeves that they didn't drape neatly. So I decided to cut out a triangle between the body part and the sleeve part. This was mostly guess work of how much I wanted to take off.
After that, it was just stitching body and arms closed and hemming all edges.
Thank you Priyanka for the photos of me.
