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.
