Orange Star Yoked T

Added Oct 8, 2009

by Brian Remlinger

Mobile, Alabama,...






I used design elements from my favorite RTW t-shirt to modify an existing pattern. The seam allowances in the yoke overlap creating texture when the knit rolls. I amplify this effect by adding narrow strips of contrasting fabric to yoke edges. Sleeves and bottom edge are not hemmed so the fabric will roll.

Material Notes

The body is bamboo/cotton, shoulder/yoke area is 100% cotton, and neckband the star and yoke contrasting strips are rayon/lycra/cotton blend.

    Really like the yoke (and the rest), somehow a ‘bastardized’ (can’t find the right term) US Navy top. Great aesthetic

    Good job; I like the star. You gave it the look of reverse applique, like molas from Guatemala. Cordially, Nehmah

    Great colour, and great star! At first I thought that you sewed on two t-shirts and then cut out thin stripes… Love your idea anyway!:)

    Thanks! Yes, steal my idea, I used plain white glue to hold the yoke pieces together while I sewed instead of pesky pins. To hold the applique star down I used a glue stick then stitched.
