I made me a singlet :-)

...still in the theme of de-stashing, I found just enough white stretchy fabric to make myself a singlet fits great, cost me nothing (from a bag of offcuts that a friend gave me a couple of years ago), and only took about an hour of my time to make :-D
I got the basic pattern from a Burda magazine (issue7/2006) that I borrowed from the library last week...I altered it a bit...*sigh...i just can't help myself!*... but I'm glad that I did because it now has a lined upper section (smart move, with it being white!), and slightly wider, 'bra strap friendly' straps ... yes, that right *drum roll*, it covers my straps without having to be manually adjusted every 2 seconds, like on my shop bought singlets :-D .....VERY happy with that!

You certainly did and it looks very good. Things you make are usually better than things from the shops. I must see if my Library has Burda. I stopped buying them about 3 years ago. I had 20 years' worth!!!

Looks good! And way to go for making it bra-friendly. I'll have to see if I can find that Burda pattern!
