Remember this oversized Walmart $7.00 clearance top?
I spent 20 minutes tonight making it wearable, and now I have this:
I pinned up a big tuck (red lines below) right above the shirred waistline and tried it on to be sure it was OK. It was, so I stitched about 3/8" away from the shirring (yellow lines).
Then I trimmed the tuck and finished the resulting raw edges all in one pass on the serger.
The last step was to sew the underam seam deeper, and then trim/finish with the serger.
And that's all I have tonight because I have laundry to fold.
