About a month ago, one of my girls asked if I could make her a t-shirt with lace sleeves. She had seen one online at a retail store. I used Ottobre's Tellervo t-shirt pattern from the 1/09 issue. I cut the sleeves and added seam allowances. I also cut the t-shirt body and added seam allowances as well.
I used French seams for the sleeves since the lace is sheer and I wanted a neat finish. This meant setting the sleeves in after the shirt was constructed. I also added a black knit cuff at the wrist to protect the lace better. The lace has tiny black hearts on it.
I covered her Miche bag with a remnant of the t-shirt fabric.
Ruffle knit was an easy addition to the shirt and a bonus of not having to do a hem!
It is so much fun to deviate from a pattern and make something all your own!
