T-Shirt Tuesday

Welcome to another day of T-Shirt Tuesday.  Today's T-Shirt was inspired by this 3.1 Phillip Lim T that I spied at Neiman Marcus.  I am so fortunate to live in the Northern VA area and have access to all the great museums.  Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bloomingdales, and Nordstrom!  I call them my museums because I only look and read at the stores - rarely buy!

This little T was only $185

This is my version.  I must have a T with sleeves so again I went to Target and purchased my fave T.

As you can see the first trim is just plain cording with petersham covering the ends.  I had a pearl belt that I made years ago and never wore, so I cut it to the length I needed and tacked it on.

I added this little knot of petersham to the sleeves to give them a little more shape. 

Hope you like my version for only $6.00.  That was the cost of the T, everything else I had in my stash!

Happy Sewing,
Michele P
