Another variation on the Lydia pattern! I whipped this tee up in an afternoon from a piece of soft, drapey black jersey. It was less than a yard, so it was really tough to get all the pieces to fit… but I did! :)
I kept the front and back pieces the same as the pattern, just scooping the neckline a little more. The sleeves I shortened quite a bit, slashed and spread and added a wide band at the bottom to hold all the gathers in place.
The sleeve caps I shirred, which I think turned out very nice! :)
Sidenote: the skirt is refashioned from a longer, vintage pencil skirt I thrifted last autumn for $1!! I shortened it, and made the pockets from the leftover hem pieces, added the buttons and voila! New/old skirt! :)
