Creamsicle Shirt {Tutoiral}

I'm starting to think I need to get a dummy to model any clothes that I make for myself.  I am just real real awkward in front of a camera and I don't feel like I "sell" the clothes very well.  So just know that the chances are high that this shirt will look much better on you than it does on me.
I really like creamsicles and that is what my mind kept thinking of when I saw this dress for $3 at Walmart {....ahem...in the kids section....cough}  I grabbed the biggest size and went to work.
I placed a second t-shirt and measured down how far I wanted to go and then I cut the peach colored shirt on the curve.
I cut a curve on the white shirt to match.
Now I connected them by placing one shirt inside the other shirt with right sides together and pinning.  *The pinning here is really important because if the shirts aren't pinned and you have extra fabric on either side, the shirt will go all wonky.

Carefully sew {or serge} all the way around the shirt.  Press and you're done.

That's it.  Now put it on, model it awkwardly, and go eat a creamsicle.  I promise there's a reason why my face isn't showing in these pictures....believe me, you don't wanna see it.  :)
And enjoy the rest of your day!
