Layered T-Shirt

 Hi Everyone!

Below you can see one of my latest.  It is simple, but I think quite a good staple with the ability to be very versatile.

 It all started here. The picture is grainy, but this is a basic black t-shirt in a heavy quality knit. The neckline is faced in a shiny satin fabric and the stripes are a shiny poly blend yarn. It was on the dollar rack and looked brand new, so I scooped it up.

It was too boring as is. So, when I found this too small lace bottom blouse with the gorgeous lace hemline, my task was clear. I was so excited that I chopped up the shirt before I took a picture, but pieced it together so you can see what I did.  I love the look of a shirt under a t-shirt or a sweater but hate the bulk. Thus, I cut out all of the bulk and added a smooth middle piece. Here it is pinned and ready to sew and press.

What do you think? I love it and the best thing is that I can use the blouse portion under a lot of other sweaters and T's. This is an easy have to try it.!..Mary P.

Athletic forms can pull off fitted or semi-fitted men's garments rather well. Pick little collars (like cutaway collars) on the off chance that you have a short neck. toronto coin laundromat
