MADE: PATTERN

I fell in love with the texture and shape of these $700 Juun J t-shirts. So, when I found this $16 dotted swiss fabric, I had to make a top out of it. I used an old t-shirt to make my pattern. If you don't have one to waste, Burda Style has an inexpensive pattern to play around with.
Step 1: Cut up a t-shirt to make your pattern. I wanted a raglan sleeve, so I cut accordingly. Open up the sleeve and body seams. I transferred this to paper, just so I could save it. 
Step 2: Cut out your pattern in the new fabric. For the sleeve I used a cotton waffle weave. Sew the sleeves to the body.
Step 3: Right sides facing, sew up the inside seams.
Step 4: Now for the neckline... Here's the formula, you'll need to measure the neck, mine was 23"
23"(Neck Measurement) - 15% + .5(seam allowance) = neck band length
Step 5: Cut out your neck band. I went on the bias, two inches wide.
Step 6: Right sides facing, stitch ends closed. Fold in half, turn right side out. 
Step 7: Pin and stitch to the shirt, raw edges together. I used a stretch zig zag stitch. 

Thanks for the photos Geof
