make a cool womens vest from a mens te-shirt
This is a vest I made my self from my dads old te-shirt. Mine has an army print, but you can use any te-shirt to make a new vest! like one with a logo, cute picture or pattern.

It may look hard to make for people who are new to makeing clothes but if it makes you feel more confident I never made a vest untill I suddenly come with this idea one night and whent for it!

Have a go, you will be amazed with your new vest you did not have to buy! Post your versions I would love to see them :)
