Step 8: Creating the Bottom

Picture of Creating the Bottom
Take your bottom shirt and cut a rectangle that measures 19 inches by 16 inches. Pin both layers of the rectangle together. Then sketch an hour glass shape onto the fabric. Make a paper pattern first for preciseness. You want the narrowest part of the hourglass to measure 4 inches across and fall 11 inches for the top of the rectangle.

this is great! last time i tried to make a top in that shape/style, i made a lot of unnecessary work for myself. your version is clear and easy to follow. i'll be using this as a basic pattern for my bellydance tops from now on. thank you!
