Sew Our Stash {July} Vintage Baseball T

If you’re new to my blog, one of my 20 Wishes is to sew one thing for myself each month so I can participate in Sew Our Stash!  It is the brain child of Marissa at Rae Gun Ramblings and Bev at Flamingo Toes.  They share what they have made for themselves the last Thursday of every month. It started because they wanted to sew more wearables and needed some accountability.  While I'm certainly not at their level yet, hopefully, my skill sets will be stretched!

That's the total point of 20 Wishes.  Making time for what I WANT to do and Wish #12 was halfway followed on this project!  Let me explain!  
 
 
This creation begins with purchasing The Trifecta Top pattern from Kitchy Coo.  I love this pattern!  It's all over the web right now.  The moment I saw it, I immediately thought Vintage Baseball T!  The soft, creamy knit fabric was found at Hancock's, but there wasn't anything for the sleeves that felt quite right.
 
 
So the back of my closet was searched and this old olive T was found and used for the sleeves!  The collar was carefully picked so it could be used, too!

 
Here is the finished shirt!  I liked it, but felt it needed a little something...  Like maybe an old screen print.

 
33 happens to be my basketball / softball number from way back in the day.  After cruising Pinterest for just the right technique, I think it is the PERFECT addition.  We will definitely be talking more about how that little 33 happened!
 
With football season just around the corner, I think this will be a great top for parties on game days!

What do you think?  Did you get to sew anything in July?

  2. Wow! I like this t-shirt. All aspects. You made it for yourself. You made it with things you had. You personalized it with the 33 ...that means something to you.
    You inspire me.
    No. I didn't sew anything this month...unless you count taking up the grandsons trunks, so I don't have to see 'crack' out at the pool?!

  4. I really need to get into sewing for myself. This is a great look on you: great combo of sewing patter, fabrics, and model. Nicely done.

    Thanks for linking up to Inspire Us Thursday!
