What materials did you use? Cotton Poly Knit. This was made from a men's XL Vee Neck Tee I found on clearance.

What are you most proud of? I cut out the neckband from the body of the original Tee but I didn't like the look as trying to match up the stripes left the neckline either too loose or too pulled. I unpicked the original neck band which was a solid color. It had more stretch than the body of the Tee and I remade the scoop. It came out well, It was worth the extra effort.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to play around with the fabric until you get the look you want. This is my third Tee and it gets easier with each one.

Love it Teresa! You go the level of the stripes spot on too! Looks awesome. Well done.
