Island Ready Turquoise T from Two Small Ts

After: Island ready top.

Cozumel NOT the RanchHouse

Trip: Western Caribbean Break  

Packing Goal: Refashion from the stash. 

Before: Two Turquoise Ts. They were the same style and too small.
Before: Two Small Ts 
The skirt was in the stash from an earlier trip.

OPTIONS:  I wanted a top / skirt matched set to wear together this summer. 
* There was not enough fabric to make a full drapy top.
* Lace insert options I had competed with the skirt.

* Keep neck band and hem on Shirt #1 and Shirt #2.
* #1: Cut up center front.  #2: Cut 8" wide strip from center back.
* Serge all raw edges.
* Run gathering strips up both sides of center strip. Pin strip in place in front of Shirt #1. Adjust gathers. Stitch in place.
