I wanted to make a casual, loose T-shirt for summer and came up with chopping up a chunky striped knit. You may not be able to tell from the photos but it's actually white and navy stripes. Which is exactly why the telescope necklace has made an appearance again. Getting all sailorish and stuff.
So how did I make it? Look out below!

|Piece 1 Piece 2 Piece 3 Altogether now!|
Now for the sewing. I sewed Piece 2 to Piece 3. Then I sewed Piece 1 to the newly joined Piece 2 & 3.
I chopped off my seam allowance to make it all neat before pinning front and back pieces wrong sides together to sew up the sides.
Now for the neckline. I measured mine out with a french curve and made it extra wide. Then I cut the neckline and sewed up either side of the neckline.
Then I made some bias tape and edged the armholes and neckline. And voila!
See it really is just a fancy square of fabric!
But no-one will ever know if you pull it off your shoulder and totally pose in it like this!
