I made this recently for our annual Mayor's Ball. You can't see in the picture but it is with a full formal length taffeta skirt. The fabric I got online from Gorgeous Fabrics and the chain I feed thru it is from Target. I actually used pattern Simplicity 2590 for women. Not the halter top one but the peasant top with sleeves, instead of cutting out the sleeves, I just serged the cut inner arms and then folded them in and sewed them down to give it all a finished look. The chain has a lobster clasp but it is somewhere in the casing so that the chain looks sewn into the garment but it is not otherwise I could not have gotten it over my big forehead, lol. I had plans to tuck the top in a balloon it out but when I got the fabric it was more sateen than slinky, luckily last minute i had the belt and Mike liked it better! This all was so easy I could definately do alot of these...now I just need to tone up those arms! Thanks for looking!

Well, you can tell I did this in a hurry, its crooked, but who can tell ona moving child! Luckily it was for my child and not a customer. This is just a Target tee with Ashley's school (LeeScottAcademy) initials on the front for her to wear to one day in the first week of school. The font was a freebie and did not work as well as I wanted so I might look into purchasing one next time.
