“Golden Girls” T-shirt Gets Glammed Up

love the pattern on the fabric
the fit - not so much

I picked this Golden Girls style t-shirt up at a garage sale for – you guessed it – $1! I figured that if I couldn’t turn it into a wearable top that it would make a great skirt. The fabric is super soft but very thick so perfect for a skirt. Once I tried it on though I really liked how it looked with my skin tone so I was determined to turn it into a top. I played around with it quite a bit and even considered making it into a halter but the fabric was so thick that when the weather was hot enough for a halter top I would be sweating it out in this top. Back to the drawing board – or in my case – the dress form.
And here's the end result:
To see how I did it and a little more details of the end result I've posted a tute at T-Shirt Gets Glammed Up.
