Women's Tshirt from Scratch

I thought it was about time I attempted to make myself a tshirt.  Using the same technique used here (basically, I just traced around an existing shirt leaving extra room for seam allowances) I made myself this pale yellow jersey top. 

I left the neckline and hem totally unfinished and added two jersey flowers, though looking at this photo I see I need to go back and trim the bottom hem.  It's simple, but it's a beginning.  I can elaborate more on the next attempt.

I like it's simplicity. I need to bust out my sewing machine for some much needing clothing for both me and my almost 6yo daughter.

thanks for the inspiration!
