I just can’t get enough

2014 March 7

Do you have the Depeche Mode song in your head now?  If so, you have my sincerest apologies.  It’s not one of their better songs.

I bet you’re wondering if I finished my graphic tee today.  Well, yes I did!  And I love it.  I received quite a few unsolicitations on it as well.  *blushing*  This time, I  stretched the binding a little more which made it lie flatter than the white and blue tee from yesterday, but also raised the neckline.  So next time I make this, I might scoop out the neckline a little more because, as is, it’s more of a crew neck than a scoop neck, even if it is still comfy.  The other changes I made were to straighten the curved hem and add a hem band of 4.5 inches folded over.  I love it this way.  It has a sweatshirty vibe now.  My dad says it looks 70’s retro.  I thought it was more 80’s but I’ll take it as a compliment.  The graphic print absolutely makes this baseball tee; it takes it from mundane to awesome.  I love it.  In fact, I believe I enabled Susan to buy some as I texted the picture of the bolt to her yesterday.  I hope I left enough yardage for her.  😉

Without further ado, here’s my new favorite top…

I’m making the purple print to wear tomorrow.  After that I’m thinking of making a lace tee.  Totes 80’s!  I’m totally an 80’s gal.  Unapologetically.

    Very cool top. I think that the print makes it 80s.

    I made a lace raglan, too.

    You think it’s just a T-shirt – but wow, what a T-shirt! Great print and great fit – ducks on a pond!

    Very nice! The print works really well like this and I think the changes you made to the bottom of the top are definitely an improvement.
    Oh, and I would agree that it’s more of an 80’s look than a 70’s one but I’m not entirely sure because I usually DO NOT like 80’s styles 😉

    Love this one! Yes I also think it’s 80’s. Kwik Sew came out with a sweatshirt pattern book that had all sizes folded up in the back. I’m not sure, but I think maybe it was written by Kristen Martensen (sp ?). They also had one of lingerie. I think there was a 3rd book of something else. Oh…I think I have them!!!!

      I do have that book. It’s Kwik Sew’s Sweatshirts Unlimited by Kerstin Martensson. Good book, but I’m still going to use the PJ pattern like you did because I want raglan sleeves.

    Awesome! Love it with the print! Very 80s – but, like good 80s, not like crazy puffy sleeve oversized shoulder pad 80s.

    That’s a great baseball tee/sweatshirt! Love that print. I’ve been working on baseball tees lately too 🙂
