purple striped tee
I did a little refashion the other week and it turned into this little square necked top! It's made from a thrifted tee (I always forget to take a before pic, just imagine a really boxy tee and pretend I did), and I decided to play with the stripes a bit! Taking my cues from this fab tutorial...this tee was created.
The knit I was working with was kind of odd, so it doesn't lay as nicely as I'd hoped, but oh well. It's also a bit big on her...Sadie is in the awkward in between sizes stage.
My favorite part is the back yokey thing. It was a total accident. I cut out both shirt pieces with the front neckline. Whoops! Too low for the back. So I cut out a piece to fit, with stripes going the other way for fun, and serged it in. It worked great and I love all the stripes going every which way! It's a big dizzying, but in a good way? Eh, I like it.
Oh yeah and then I added a little fabric flower on front. Just chopped off the bottom of an old tee, gathered the raw edge, and sewed it into a circle flower. Easy peasy! Have you refashioned anything lately?
