JSterns -- The Tee -- 0041 -- Take Three

This is item #3 for my wardrobe contest entry. Don't you love this fabric? It's so soft and cozy. I wish they (my local fabric boutique) would buy this in a few different colors. I would buy them all. I added a neckband like last time and I straightened out the hem so it wasn't so long in front. Crazy cuffs, eh?


Can you see what I did for the neckband?? I did it just like the Jeans Gaposis Fix from Emilie. I made the band and then used a larger seam allowance in the middle so the neckband would be shorter in the middle. I'm not explaining this very well, am I?? I'll take a picture for you.


I don't know if the cuffs are too much but I like them a lot.


I hope to finish my Jalie jeans this weekend too. I did a sample for the pockets. They won't be exactly like this. I will be using red instead of orange for the middle detail. It's a free pattern from Embroidery Emotions. I left out several of the colors and skipped them so my design was not so dense.


Here's the actual size compared to the pocket size. I think I'll do it diagonally like this.

Love the pocket detail. Now you make me want an embroidery machine. I'm trying desperately to catch up with you! Talk about fast sewing.

You know, if something may be too much but you love it, you should just consider that it's what makes the outfit. Personally, I love the cuffs :-).

Really nice top! I love how you have combined the fabrics!

I think the cuffs make it look very RTW. If I didn't know you had made it, I'd have guessed it was from Gap or Banana Republic. Very cute!

I love the cuffs! They're fantastic. The embroidery on your jeans pockets looks fabulous too.

Cuffs - GREAT! What pattern is that tee shirt, JSterns 0041? Just venturing from the Big 4. Have heard of Jolie, Hot Patterns, etc. but not JSterns.

WOW!
Everything is looking fantastic!
Love that embroidery design - thanks for the link.

I love the stripe combo on the top, and I don't think the striped cuffs are too much at all.

Loving the embroidered pocket. Now that I'm hooked on the Ottobre jeans pattern I'm beginning to wonder if I need an embroidery machine for my pockets . . .
