Okay................... It is official ! :dave: I hate patterns! LOL I am using a pattern from thats so raven. I made one shirt.... turned out awfully... So I used the gist of the idea to make the second one, enlargened the pattern where necessary and made the bottom front and back longer. :) So without further ado:

Great shirt! And I love that fabric also. That would look really good for a "grown-up" shirt for the summer with a nice tan to!
