Description

I modified the long sleeve tee pattern from Burda 2-2011 after reading Zoe’s bustier line tee tutorial
The black tee is a double knit remnant I had along with some black stretch lace. The stripey version is a cheap-y t-shirt knit. I’m pleased with both although they are little, um, snug since I forgot to add seam allowances :/

    So cute! Both versions of the shirt look great. I really like the lace one and can’t wait to try and find the pattern! :-)

    I think both versions look great. I like how you played with the stripes. I haven’t managed to find stretch lace. If I do, I might try something similar.

    I love the black lace one. And I kind of like the tightness, they look well fitted which I really like in my tops. (Especially since my top is more appealing than my bottom.) heh

      Hey thanks! The black one is just a little more slim than I’m used to. I don’t mind it too much except around my belly. It reminds me to suck in and stand up straight, though!

    I like how different they look based on your fabric choices. I really like the one on the left, and want to make it myself!
