But, just because the girls sag and the waist is padded, this doesn't mean I don't like feeling sexy. Enter the dolman shirt, God's gift to child-bearing woman. Seriously, I want to kiss whoever designed this thing. Here's my favorite one:
See what I mean? It's pretty hard to go wrong with this shirt. It hides the things that need to be hidden all the while maintaining a sexy feminine look. I wanted to see if I could do the same thing with a T-shirt. Here's what I did:
I took a men's XL T-shirt, turned it inside out, and laid it flat on my cutting table.
Next, I laid my favorite dolman shirt on top of it, pinned the two shirts together, and used a water soluable fabric pen to trace the outline of my dolman on top of the tee.
When I was finished with my outline, I unpinned the shirts and cut both the front and the back of the neck out of the tee by using the lines I traced from the neck of my dolman.

(Front neckline cut)
Next, I sewed along the lines I'd traced onto the tee.
When I was finished sewing, I cut away the excess fabric.
Then I cut a couple inches off of the bottom of the shirt.
And sewed a hem.
