~I picked this super well loved jersey from the thrift not knowing exactly how I was gonna keep all the things I loved about it while turning it into something sassy and wearable. This could easily have been turned into one of the usual raglan style re~T's that I dig making. The problem with that was I was completely in love with the vintage V neck and the jersey style yoke at the top of the shirt, and I would have to chop that off to accommodate my usual pattern. In addition to wanting to keep some of the cool yoke I wanted to maximize the length hopefully even add a little. I have found that when I add the raglan sleeves I can actually lengthen a shirt by a few inches (something to make good use of). So I made the sleeves a little longer in the neck and made them outta jersey knit for extra stretch! I am thrilled with all the results of my solutions! I am also a little bubbled over by the name BOB on the back....might be a keeper.
