Years ago I made a fabulous reverse appliqué of my sewing logo, and while I love the embroidery the shirt wasn’t that great. Some combination of the color, V-neck (often awkward on me), and clinginess of the fabric meant that I never wore the shirt. I don’t think I ever actually wore it out of the house after that photo shoot in 2010. That’s insane, because it’s a great design (courtesy of my husband Jason) and I put a lot of time into the stitching.

I had a really hard time making the first cut into the shirt, but I’m so glad I did it! This fuchsia and white jersey was about to be donated to the local Boys’ and Girls’ Club, but at the last minute I snatched it for this project. I whipped up the top in about 20 minutes, start to finish, and just cut into the fabric without worry about patterns.


I’ve been a big fan of kimono sleeves on knit tops for a while, and of stripe fabric, and it’s purely a coincidence that these two elements are a trend! right now.

Nice save!  I always want to save the best part of my old clothing but never knew what to do with them!  This gives me a great idea!  It is cute and it looks fresh--kind of wonderful that you had that touch of pink in the embroidery already... Cheesy
