Odds Ands Sods



With tickets to a rugby match and nothing to wear, drastic action was called for.  When I say nothing to wear, I mean that leaving when the sun is shining and arriving home after dark, kind of nothing to wear.  Of course sleeves were in order and given my local team wear red and black, it helped to be wearing the correct colours. 

I had a metre of grey cotton lycra from my stash that had been waiting for a project whereby it was brightened by a contrasting colour.  I also had leftovers from this dress and this became my inspiration for a new tee.  I decided that a long sleeve stretch tiny pocket tee was in order. 



I used the Tessuti Lola Tee as my pattern just lengthening the sleeves.



I had seen a rtw tee with a floral back and plain front so I decided to replicate this style and added the tiny pocket for interest.

I think this style will be my go to for winter so there will be more on my to do list as the weather cools.  Now I just need to find more fabric combinations.

  1. Great top ~ you will get a lot of wear out of it (and all the rest you make as well) ... J

  2. Great fabric combo - I'm making Lola tees at the moment too. It's a nice pattern.

    1. I am really liking the looser tee style myself at the moment.
