Summer Trifectas


Summer came. It was time to do some t-shirt supplementation.

I made some long-sleeve versions of Kitschy Coo's Trifecta top earlier this spring. In my short-sleeve versions, it was fun to try out some of the variations ... v-neckline, pocket, triangle inset (which I faked and serged on top instead).


It turns out, I reach for these first whenever they're clean, beating out my custom-made self-drafted tees (boo).

Next up: Jalie's new swim shorts. They must have been reading my mind (or my posts) since up until now I've been frankenhacking assorted swim shorts with varying degrees of success.

    1. Thanks, Judith! I suppose faking things isn't a good life policy, but it's working in the sewing department.

    1. I do really like it. Comfortable (because, you know, it's a t-shirt) and yet the fit isn't sloppy.
