Almost

How long have I been working on the "perfect t-shirt"?  (April 2013) The Final Frontier was the neck binding.  I used the neckline x 0.875.  Too much, left it ripply.  It wasn't completely dry...just pulled it out for photo shoot.  Maybe?  (Or Not.)

So let's see, that's 2 years, 4 RTW t-shirts sacrificed for templates.  4 needles (including a fancy "double needle").  5 spools of thread of each color attempted.  Yards of fabric. Hours trolling the internet for t-shirt tutorials.
Laundry costs. Several bottles of wine and six packs of beer.

I may need to re-think my hatred for shopping for RTW clothing.

I feel your pain, I have a sleeveless lined dress I've been fighing so may years I've lost count lol! I love rd so this is why I know this will work out for you lol! have you tried going down a size around the top or is it just the fabric? some fabrics just doesn't work no matter how hard we try with no fault of our own
