when i bought the fabric, i meant to make it as leg-warmers. that’s why i only bought around 70 cm of it. but what do you know, it was enough for me to make a simple t-shirt!
i like the Nordic print of the fabric, and i’ve never had any sweater or top with this kind of print before, which made me change directions to making this as a t-shirt. i didn’t use any pattern for this, just cut a T shape with slightly lower neckline for the front, and another one with higher neckline for the back, and 2 small rectangles for the sleeve hems.
and i just HAD to put those metal studs again, of course. can’t get enough of small sparkling additions in this dark winter season! for the hem, when i tried it on before sewing it, it looked kind of plain just like that, so i decided to make it a bit more interesting by cutting a small piece off of it, creating a small indentation. this was done super quickly, the whole project (starting from cutting the fabric) only took 2 hours in total!
about 70 cm of acrylic/polyamide knit fabric,
some metal studs to your own liking.
