I love all your photos...I am hoping to make over some t-shirts also. Seems like a good way to get unusual fabrics plus the fit and style I want.

Terrific information on the use of this pattern for repurposing old Ts.

Such a nice looking top, and I like all your other Ts made from this pattern.

Wow to all your shirts. I saw this pattern in the best patterns list and bought it a while back as I figured as well loved as it is I better put it into my collection. You have definitely put it high on my to do list.

A very smart and distinctive garment. Well done!

Wow! girl, you are doing the stashers up proud! This (and all the others) are fantastic and you have a great eye for picking the perfect fabric to make these tops stand out.

Fabulous. I'd like to read a review of your cover stitch--what brand do you have?

It seems to me everything you do is perfect and beautiful! Glad you are enjoying your new coverstitch machine.

This has to be one of the greatest patterns for a beginner - Ive made a few myself and I'm pleased with the results. Karen, I'm impressed that you recut t-shirts to give them new life and I like your choice of fabrics.

Two more great looking tops. Can you believe I don't have this pattern? It is definitely a winner.

I LOVE your fabric choice for this top! It jumped out at me from all of the reviews in the gallery. This is such a classy looking top!

I love all of the versions of this top. Great fabric selections.

All your t's are fabulous and fit you beautifully, but I can't take my eyes off this beauty you've reviewed today! Wow, it's a killer; the fabric is nothing short of perfect for your small shape. Absolutlely lovely, Lily

All your tops (past and present) are lovely! I have this pattern and really need to try it.

This one and another vogue pattern are my 2 favorites that I make all the time, so I love to see everyone else's variations. I love your 3/4 sleeve - very pretty !!

Thanks for drawing my attention to this t-shirt pattern. Who doesnt need a basic tee in their wardrobe. Your t-shirts are lovely.

I like your latest tee. Thanks for reminding me about this pattern.

Another winner and I like the fabric placement.

That's neat how you placed the dark line under the bust. It makes it look like there's an empire seam there... and it "lifts" the bust. That fabric is great.

Karen, this is stunning fabric!!! Absolutely gorgeous! I'm sure you'll look a knockout wearing this top. Everything about it looks great.

I love the old t-shirt suggestion!

Very nice T's. I especially love the fabric in the one you reviewed.

Love all of your versions. I also have a favorite KS pattern: No 3161. I've used EOS fabric for the short sleeved and long sleeved versions, each made at least twice. It's great when one finds a pattern that just WORKS, isn't it? Thanks for sharing.

Ronda, I do these on the regular machine - haven't accumulated a serger yet either. I do them on a small zigzag or straight stitch, depending on the amount of stretch in the fabric. Irina, I've made it into a fairly close-fitting tee, but you can definitely add some ease. It's a very cooperative pattern.

Love them all. Great fabric choices.

Great T, and a great pattern for fun fabrics. I need to get myself a TNT t-shirt pattern.

Great tee, great fit!

My goodness, your are a very prolific producer of t-shirts! The neckline is gorgeous, and they all look very professional. Is this a fairly close-fitting tee, or is there some ease?
Sew4Fun said... (10/2/06 8:18 PM) Reply
Great tees! I love your fabric choices too. I can see why this pattern is a favourite.
Ronda Rae said... (10/2/06 7:27 PM) Reply
I love your tees! I wish I could make some of these. I don't have a serger (yet) and can't seem to do it right on the regular SM. Your material choices are great, too!

Karen--I am assuming you did the scoop neck view? I "made over" a T-shirt using this pattern but had to use the high neck due to the screenprinting placement. I like the look of the scoop neck SO much better though. Your shirts are great and great choices on the fabric. I must try this pattern on something other that a T-shirt makeover!

Those are so very pretty, great job.

Cute top!

They all look so nice - isn't it nice to have Tees that really fit!!

They look great! You always have the coolest fabrics!
Princess Jenny said... (10/2/06 3:31 PM) Reply
Wow! They are all beautiful. I see why this pattern is one of your favorites. You picked such lovely materials each time, too :)

Beautiful T-shirt, elegant to boot! This is now on my must do list.
Jayme said... (10/2/06 1:59 PM) Reply
Very nice tee's!!! I have really taken to rebuilding t-shirts as well. My daughters are continually bringing me "rebuilds"! You should send your pictures to Kwik Sew - they have such great patterns, but I feel their drawings never do their patterns justice!
