T Neck to Tee

When I first bought this piece ($3.99 from the thrift store, it's Land's End) I thought I would make a clingy skirt from it. But while trying to come up with ways to style it, I decided a shirt would be more serviceable.

Before picture: a turtle neck (it CHOKES me) with long sleeves. I like the yellow, I like the stripes, I like the fabric. To make it useful and comfortable, I simply chopped off the neck and sleeves. I made old-school neck and sleeve hems; turn over twice, no rough edges.

And I decided to stitch by hand. It's a cold, rainy day (51 F) and it's pleasant to cuddle with the dog and sew.

Here I am in my new 3/4 sleeve, scoop neck tee!

And there's more: I have enough fabric left from the turtle neck and the sleeves to make a pair of super soft stretchy underpants!

Much more wearable! I love the black and yellow stripes!
