Lace Yoke Tee and Me Made May 2013

I cobbled together another t-shirt using some scrap lace and this pale pink jersey from The back and sleeves are sheer, the neckline and sleeve edges are bound using a 1″ strip of the jersey.  I serged one of the sides, sewed the unserged side right sides together and then flipped over and did a line of top stitching on the lace just catching the serged edge of the strip.  Very easy and non bulky finish. 

The front is lined with the jersey.  I planned to have it sheer but I didn’t like how I could see my bra so I lined it.


I wore it today with jeans but I think it would look pretty tucked in to a pencil skirt as well for a dressier look.

Anyway, not much more to say about that, its the same self drafted pattern I used for my other t-shirts.

I say it was cobbled together as I really didn’t try very hard to make the binding perfect.  It was very much thrown together but hey, its just a t-shirt and its very wearable so I’m glad I didn’t waste spend hours extra trying to make it all perfect. 

And also, here is my signup for Me-Made-May-2013.

‘I, Janelle of Sew Hopeful, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I will endeavour to wear a handmade or refashioned garment/accessory every day for the duration May 2013’.


Me-Made-May was a real turning point for me last year. I met some amazing people who I have maintained contact with over the past 12 months, I got inspired, encouraged and motivated.  I am SO looking forward to it again although it WILL be challenge.

The flickr group is here (no pics until May though) and the twitter hashtag is #MMMay13.  Two weeks to go and no panic sewing happening here (cough cough).
