ANOTHER tee shirt

My latest quick little project was another version of this RTW top. The fabric is an old cotton knit from my stash. It's not the best fabric, but it's ok for a little tee shirt. This first photo is the closest to the actual color - pale-ish blue leaning toward periwinkle.

Well, actually, the fabric wasn't the best fit for this top. The original and my first recreated version are in jersey. This cotton knit is a bit beefier with less stretch, so my arms feel a bit like they're in sausage casings, although I don't think the shirt looks super tight on. Also, the top part doesn't drape nicely. It gives me a serious uni-boob and doesn't reach all the way under my bust easily.

All in all, another so-so project, but it only took two evenings of work. It probably won't last in my closet more than a year or so, but I can't bring myself to get rid of it right away, even though I don't LOVE it. It's a perfectly fine top. I do like it today under my new sweater (X-mas present from my hubby). It's nice and cozy for ANOTHER snowy day today.

...and here's a sneak peek at what's up next. I'm going to walk you through my patent-pending (ok, not really) "make-it-up-as-you-go-along method of neckline construction.
