Layered Tee minus the Layers

First of all, this is more of an idea-giver than a tutorial.  I promise to be better about more thorough tutorials, with lost of pictures, but this one seemed pretty simple.

I love the look of layers, but I hate wearing five hundred shirts.  On this shirt I sewed in a mock tank top.  I just took a V-shaped piece of fabric and sewed it in.  Then I added a little tab with a button so I could gather up the tank.  Then I added a ruffle around the edge.  Tadaaahhhh!


You might be happy to know that I am also getting better at taking pictures of myself in the mirror.  That way you don't have to wonder if I have a wandering eye.  That first shoot was pretty bad.  AND...I even did my hair for all of you.  I know - you're touched.   
Happy sewing!

Nice shirt! I'm relieved to know that you do not have a wondering eye. I would say you have an "eye" for sewing.
