Beige t-shirt finished

I've finished the t-shirt from Mary's design called 'Fan and Ribbon'.  This is from her book 'A Pattern Book of Tatting' but I 'invented' a feature motif to go at the centre front.  

I didn't join it to the others because I couldn't decide on joining places that would look right to me!  I will NOT be sharing this motif as it's far too close to the original which is still, obviously, under copyright.  It does take a bit of working out how to do it and it did stretch BC3's poor old brain cells but it was well worth the effort.  

As you can see from the motif I did use vsp's to give me some joining places while sewing it down - as I did on the main edging.

I'm really, really pleased with this t-shirt and will be moving onto the next one  shortly!!!

It has turned your plain T-shirt Into a very upmarket one! The thread and the pattern are perfect.

Fabulous! So clever to turn the edging into a flower.

Wonderful shirt! The edging and colors are 'just right.' Fantastic idea to turn the edging into a motif for the center, too - it makes everything even better.
