Step 4: Gently file the edges of the paper to be smooth and flush with the side of the tile. Step 5: Now you need to seal the paper. Step 7: Now attach the silver bail. . © 2008, HomeStudio. Joyful Ruffle Neck Top – Tutorial. Last week I showed you the top I made for my MIL’s B-day, remember? Well today is My Mom’s B-day! So Feliz Cumpleaños Mamá!!

And as part of the celebration, I will show you how to make this top! Maybe it can be the Mom’s B-day Top!! The process is not very complicated and if you are making one for yourself I will describe the measurements I took, so you can adapt them to fit you. For the top I used some left overs I had of red polka-dot Chiffon, and I wear the top with something under it because the fabric is see trough, but you can make it with your choice of fabric, so you can wear it alone. Top Front: The width for this piece is your bust, I added to my measurement 1 inch on each side for the folding, plus 1.5 inches on each side for comfort.

They're soft, comfortable, and have good worn (and sentimental) designs on them. But, I never wear them for anything other than around the house because they are large men's t-shirts and look completely shapeless on me.
