This cute top was found in a pile of clothes at a thrift shop in Germany. I loved the fabric so much I bought the top even though it was for men and even though it was an XXL. But no worries, I thought, once I get my hands on a sewing machine,I could turn things around , literally .


Acest maieu dragut l-am gasit intr-o gramada de haine intr-un magazin de second in Germania. Mi-a placut atat de mult materialul , desi este pentru barbati si desi este XXL. Dar nici o grija, m-am gandit, odata ce pun mana pe o masina de cusut, intorc literalmente lurcurile invers.

This weird before pic has the intention of demonstrating the big loop under  the pit .\ Ciudata poza de dinainte are intentia de a demonstra gaura mare de sub axila.

Redesigned and and re-hemmed . \ Alt design, alt tiv.

Truth is, I found a fun tank on anthropologie that had tiny arrows painted on grey frabric (I cannot find it anymore, I failed to pin it on pinterest , apologies) but the image is somewhat clear in my head. Anyway, I was trying to simplify the idea and the arrow print is what I came up with.


Adevarul este ca am gasit un maieu interesant pe anthropologie care avea mici sageti pictate pe material gri (Nu il mai gasesc pe site, am uitat sa il pun pe pinterest, asta e.) dar imaginea sa este oarecum clara in minte. In fine, am incercat sa simplific ideea cu sageata iar rezultatul este urmatorul :
