Brooklyn, New Yo...
I have this long sleeved American Apparel tee that I wear all of the time (http://store.americanapparel.net/product/rsa0316s.html#). It’s basically the most comfortable shirt ever, so I wanted another one. I had this incredibly soft and cozy jersey fabric on hand, so I used the American Apparel top to create a pattern. This was the first time I’d really done this (except for a few tank tops here and there). So I was surprised that it basically worked. I had a little trouble getting the sleeves right (I was having trouble connecting them to the body of the top). But after toying around with them a bit, they seemed fine.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
