Phoenicia, New Y...






i think this might be the best shirt i ever made. i got this beautiful fabric with my mom and it took me forever to figure out what exactly to make with it. it then all started with the fabric medallions and slowly it all came together. i’m very happy with it!

Material Notes

silk jersey from mood





my mom for getting me the fabric, leanne “leanimal” marshall from project runway for inspiring the sleeves, ceregana for her sweatshop tutorial and me for basically making up a pattern!

    Your sleeves are one of the coolest ideas I have seen in a long time. And the execution is perfection!

    Lovely! Lately I’ve been really bored with sleeves—-they all seem to be puffed. Your sleeves are so unique that it’s really cheered me up. Doesn’t hurt that the shirt looks very well-made, and the fabric is the bee’s knees.

    Great job! I immediately thought of Leanimal/Leanne Marshall when I saw those sleeves, and then I read your credit section. The red piping is a nice detail.

    You did an awesome job on this great top! I love the sleeve details and the thin piping really adds that little something. Would you consider sharing your pattern with us?
