The biggest problem I have with making clothing as a gift, is knowing what size to make. This top is designed to be loose, so I felt I was quite safe in making this one the same size as my own. Now this particular tee is a triumph I feel because actually it cost me nothing but time. While Courteney was away tramping for the weekend, I very cleverly embarked on this project.
What makes this project so special is what I started with. The blue fabric is actually a new but otherwise unwanted mens tee shirt that Courteney won in a sports competition. By cutting the back out of the front and the front out of the back, I just had enough fabric for the new tee. Once again I used McCalls 6359 and cut it 12cm shorter than the pattern, like I did last time. I did not need to hem this one as I reused the hem on the original tee. I again used the same lace as Courteney's Christmas dress. I obviously bought way too much as these tops have not even made a dent in the left overs.
Just as I did in my previous versions, I raided my scraps bin to make the binding to face the neck and armhole openings.
