V Neck T

The sale section at G street fabrics is dangerous. I found yards and yards of fabric I wanted. And I made friends with two hilairous ladies that were actually draping fabric on me and designing a beach wrap. It was awesome. I came out with some great finds, including the softest cream colored knit fabric and turned it into a V neck T-shirt.

Im tired of having to wear two shirts, one on top to look cute, and one underneath. Most V neck shirts I find are too low, and hardly ever long enough, so I decided to make my own!

Turns out this cream fabric is kind of sheer so I have to wear a shirt underneath anyway. Next time I will choose a darker or thicker fabric.


I used one of my favorite shirts as a pattern. It was a little tricky, but I did alot of thinking and a lot of re-pinning, but finally figured it out!

It was my first attempt at 1. a shirt, 2. sleeves, and 3. elastic thread (which I LOVE)


The ruffle is more super soft knit sewn with elastic thread then added to the neckline. I think it looks like whipped cream!


And it fits perfect. This is the joy of sewing it myself!
