Quite a while back I bought this olive green jersey knit fabric from joanne's for about 3 bucks. I finally took the plunge and made something with it. It had originally started out life as a cardigan, but I decided with summer coming up that I really wasn't going to be needing a cardigan nor will I be doing any layering (Indiana has incredibly humid summers!). It has a scoop neckline with some small gathering around it, the sleeves have armbands, there is a band around the bottom and there is an insert right down the middle with side pockets. Sorry for the bad pics, my apartment has terrible lighting, I had to stand on a chair in the bathroom to get any decent pictures, and my camera seems to be on it's last leg. Anyway, on to the pics!

Side, notice pockets

I'm not sure if I like it yet or not. I still need to trim some seams and press them flat. There are a few mistakes, some weird puckering on the back of one of the sleeves, which makes me kind of hesitant to wear it out of the house.

That's really pretty. I like the color and the design! Did you use a pattern! I like it! I also like those pockets. I continue to think that all clothes should have pockets!

Oh, I forgot to add that I didn't use a pattern, I just used an old fitted tee and traced it for the body of the shirt, and traced one of the sleeves to get the sleeve shape right.

 I think it's very pretty. I love the color, and the side pockets are awesome. Very good, especially since you didn't use a pattern. And please don't let a couple tiny mistakes scare you away from wearing it out... they just make it special Grin

It looks great. And trust me, nobody will ever notice teeny mistakes like that.

You're your own worst critic, remember that!
