Wow I typed a response and it got lost! Anyway I will try again. I started with a joke. If I told you I'd have to kill you! Ha ha, not as funny the second time. This was the first one of these and only my 3rd tee. I hope you don't want full pattern instructions. The decorative thread goes in the upper looper, flatlock the front and back at the shoulders, bad sides together for decorative loops to show, then the sides, then the sides of the bottom brown section, the then fold the brown part of the sleeves in half and flatlock the three raw edges to the black. I guess now you switch to 4 thread all black overlock and sew sleeve seams, black band side seams, and attach collar. Back to 3 thread flatlock and attach black ban, then move decorative thread to needle and do a flatlock hem at bottom. I think that's everything. Think about it an ask if unclear. Is this going to make me rich and famous?

I guess you might do the collar before the sleeves to eliminate that bulk while your working, I forgot to say attach sleeves to body with the 4 thread overlock. After you stitch that seam.

I hate to complain all the time but you can't believe all the issues and effort it took to respond to her request for instructions. It lost my first one. I typed it up and it asked me to log in and after the log in it was gone. I typed it up again and it locked up the iPad and Internet, luckily I copied it this time and had it in my note pad, I rebooted the internet, and iPad and logged in and then replied for the third attempt. Oh well. I hope it helps you make the tee.

That is a really great use of decorative threads. And very helpful instructions.
