One for me too, please.

That is Totally Freakin' Sweet.

The gray hoodie really makes it pop, and what beautiful placement on the shirt!

Straight edge doesn't necessarily mean no sex before marriage, just no promiscuous sex, which, of course, is open to interpretation.

The Xs come from clubs putting Xs on the hands of underage kids at all age shows so the bartenders know not to serve them.

It used to be a serious lifestyle choice, but has become more of a fashion choice, because it looks cool to write your name with little x's at either end. When I was in highschool you'd be hard pressed to find a straight-edge kid who really was straight, though. There's an old joke that goes:
"How many straight-edge kids does it take to drink a six-pack?"
"One, if no one's lookin'"

xVx - I love it!

Actually, I think it's more common to attach the sleeve to the garment first (along the right edge in Randommarble's diagram), and then sew the side seam of the garment and the underseam of the sleeve in one fell swoop, finishing by hemming the end of the sleeve.

Here's how I would do it:

* Spread open your garment and your sleeve (optionally stay-stitched, but it's probably not necessary, depending on the material you're using) and put right sides together matching along the shoulder seam.

* Attach the sleeve to the garment by stitching along the shoulder seam but stopping at the underarm on each side.

* Now would be a good time to pin the underarm seam and make sure it hangs nicely. You may even want to use a basting stitch in the previous step to make it easier to remove if it doesn't fit right. Sew over the seam with a shorter stitch once you've verified that everything is okay up to this point and remove the basting stitch.

* Turn the garment inside out and stitch the sleeve and side seams closed starting at the to-be-hemmed edge of the sleeve and following it through the underarm and down the side to the bottom of the shirt.

* Hem the sleeve and the bottom of your shirt.

If you want your sleeves to hang to somewhere along your upper arm, make sure that the shoulder seam of your garment reaches over your shoulder. If the shoulder seem is too high, your sleeves will stick out instead of hang down. For babydoll or long sleeves you shouldn't have to worry much about this.

In all, it probably took somewhere around 6 or 7 hours. I was going to press the seams open and finish them, but the thought of spending another 6 or 7 hours doing that didn't exactly seem like the best way to spend my easter.

Straight cutting wasn't a problem with a T-square. I just removed the sleeves, cut them into 2 inch strips and sewed it back together using the neckline from the green one as a starting point.

Unfortunately, vertical stripes wouldn't have worked. Since the orange shirt had raglan sleeves, there wouldn't have been enough orange stripes that were tall enough to go all the way from top to bottom.

What do you do when you have one shirt in a great color, but with a stupid design on the front, and another shirt that's just like 4 shirts you already own?  You make one shirt that's a great color and not like anything you own, that's what!

It's taken two months, what with finishing school, finding a job, and then moving, but I've finally just put on an Adam Ant box set and blasted through the rest of this shirt today.

Here's what the two shirts looked like before I got to them:

(well...shortly after I got to them, actually... I've already started removing the sleeves from the orange one here)

And here's what they look like now:

Stay tuned to see what I do with the orange raglan's sleeves. Wink

Totally rad. Excellent yoke design. I've been trying to think of something clever to do on my next shirt. I think I may have found just the right thing to steal inspiration.

The best I could do in 15 minutes. It's not perfect (there are some white islands), but you should be able to manage it from here.

I used a regular zipper foot for the skirt in https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=20711.msg168006#msg168006

As long as you take your time, rolling the coils out of the way isn't a big deal.
