This shirt has a strange pattern because I wanted to omit the sewn-on-lapel label of the t-shirt. The keyhole back was added for this reason. Since the t-shirt fabric rolled on the edges in a way I didn’t like, I attempted to bind the neck and decided to make ties around the keyhole. While I don’t love the outcome, I do love the colour of this fabric, it’s one of my favourites.
It would have been good to use the HowTo on sewing a rib knit band. Next time!
