Lemon T-shirt

One thing I did notice during the "Starting from Scratch" analysis was that the tops that I was missing in my final list were all "summer".

Then Pattern Review decided to hold their Fabric Stash Contest and we had also decided to head north for a holiday so the decision to make this top was easy.

I'm trying not to turn blue -10C

Again I have used Kwik.Sew 3740, my TNT t-shirt pattern and this time I have:

  • Raised the neckline by 2cm
  • Added short sleeves
  • Added a 2.5cm cuff to the sleeves
  • Used my Janome Coverstitch binder to do a 3/8" bound neckline



This is one of the ways I will wear it during our holiday up north


and I will remember to make sure the back hem is not turned under next time!


This t-shirt has turned out exactly as I had imagined and now to make some bright necklaces to go with it.

Another item from my "To Sew, Knit or Purchase" is completed.

Great t-shirt, you've really nailed the fit on it. It must feel really good to see your plan coming together. Enjoy your holiday :)

I really like that t-shirt. I love lemon but can't wear it near my face - yours is a nice outfit. It is a great fit. I like the visual for your plan... maybe I need to copy that idea.

Very nice - great binding. And yes - you do look cold. Especially as I know how cold it is today!

Great work filling in wardrobe gaps. How do you find your coverstitch machine? I have a Janome one too, and it is the most temperamental machine I've ever come across!

Nice TNTT! Have a good time up north.

Great fit! Love the subtle yellow color.

It looks lovely! I think I am an "autumn" like you, but I've never thought to wear lemon yellow. It does however look so fabulous on you and go so well with all your other autumn-y colours that maybe I should follow your lead. Thank you for the inspiration!

Love your t-shirt. The cuffs on the sleeves are a lovely detail and you have really nailed the fit. Enjoy your holiday.

Great basic t-shirt - missing element from my wardrobe too. Hope you recover from your cold quickly.

I love this t-shirt, it fits you so beautifully.

Your tee shirts always look so professional. I would love a coverstitch machine! Enjoy your holidays in the north which, I imagine ,has a different connotation in Australia than it does in Canada!!
