Tutorial Tuesday :: Retro Triple Band Sleeve V-Neck Tee from The Sewing Rabbit

Adding a retro flair to your handmade wardrobe can be so much fun, especially when it involves cozy, comfy, and easy to make garments! This Retro Triple Band Sleeve V-Neck from Jess Abbott of The Sewing Rabbit is the perfect one-of-a-kind tee that can easily be paired with jeans or leggings for an everyday look. Click here for the entire tutorial and happy sewing!

Jess's tutorial involves a few simple alterations on any raglan top pattern. She uses this FREE raglan sewing pattern from It's Always Autumn, but you can apply the same concepts to other patterns as well. What I love most about this tutorial is that Jess takes you step-by-step through all adjustments with clear and concise illustrations and descriptions.

Most stretch knits including Cotton Jersey and Cotton Lycra will be perfect for your new tee. Because Jess color blocks several small pieces, I suggest starting your search with our Half Yards and 1/4 Yard Mystery Mix Lots. A few of my picks from the store:
