Designs by Chantelle

Yes, I not only sewed this shirt myself, I actually designed it! So, if you don't like it, that is okay. I don't like everything real designers (you know, the ones that get paid the big bucks) make either. But, I like it and am extremely proud of myself.

It is the first time I have:
1. used a serger (rolled hems are now my favorite thing!!)
2. created shirring using elastic thread (the bottom hem is shirred)
3. designed my own article of clothing

Truth be told, I never intended it to be off-the-shoulder but I love it as it is anyway. I will probably add tiny straps just to keep it on better but I can't say enough how proud I am!


  1. That is adorable! You look like such a cool mom. :)

  2. It's CUTE! I don't even know what shirring is but I wish I knew how to do it and I agree with Amanda, you look like a cool mom!
