Empire cut Blouse, T-Shirt reconstruction with Tutorial

I’ve been fascinated with all the T shirt reconstruction I’ve seen around, so yesterday, I was bored and decided to make my own reconstruction.. I had a big t shirt (it was my mom’s) I trace it and start cutting… This is how it looks like, I can’t wear tight T-shirts, very often I get stomach inflammation because thanks to digestive problems, and sometimes I look like I’m 4 months pregnant, so this blouse is perfect for those days. Of course I need to perfection it but it wasn’t that bad for my first attempt, what do you think?

well I thought I made a tutorial of how I made it.. please bear with me since English is not my first language, and if something needs corrections or do you need more explanation please let me know, this will also be my first tutorial.

    This is fabulous! The diagram and instructions are very good, I love this style of blouse! I have Crohn’s Disease so I sympathize with needing loose-fitting clothing at times. I look forward to thrifting t-shirts to make this!

    Thank you for sharing! I’m currently plus size & also have stomach problems. This shirt looks cute & comfy! Most of the shirts online or in stores are ugly & costly. I can’t wait to make a few. Thanks again!! :)

    Gracias para la tutoria! Like you, I have digestive problems where I will sometimes get a swollen stomach when I’m having a flare-up, and I like wearing empire tops when I have that problem. This gives me inspiration to make my own tops and save money. Gracias otra vez!
