Olive Jersey Pocket Tunic

Added Sep 1, 2008

by etcpantoufle

San Francisco, C...






A comfy jersey tunic top with contrast stitching and a decorative pocket. Semi-American-Apparel-inspired, but with a more handmade or crafty feeling.

Sleeves have a small inverted pleat at the shoulder seam for extra give, and the hem of the sleeves and top itself are left raw since the material does not unravel. This top was draped directly to the dressform.

Material Notes

olive cotton blend jersey, gutermann poly thread.

    whimsykid: My thoughts exactly regarding AA. I used to feel guilty for loving their clothes, since on top of being expensive they are a gross, slimy company. My next adventure will be a deep-v one piece swimsuit a la AA.

    This is really simple yet cool and versatile! Whenever I look at American Apparel stuff, I always think “This is so ridiculously easy to make,why does it cost fifty bucks?”. It’s great to see others think the same way and try to make inspired cotton jersey pieces!
