Another t-shirt tart up

I had another t-shirt to work on

It had the same fit problems as the last one ie shoulders too big and a little downsizing at the waist, shortening the sleeves, but the main change was going to be adding interest with a kind of contrast bib.

I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest.

After many musings through my stash I chose some striking fabric to work with. This magpie fabric came from a home sewn dress which I had bought at a charity shop for another project, and felt bad cutting up, but I did buy the dress for the lovely fabric not to wear.

It was finished off with some rick rack binding.  I haven't used this before but was quite taken with the way it could be used to cover up a seam and go round corners so effortlessly.

Here's the t-shirt after my modifications

There are more details and photos here including the link to the inspiration.

Those magpies are really eye catching! The contrast with the pink and purple is great too.
