You loved it in the store but then when you got home you realize it wasn't that great! :(

So I am an outlet shopper and for the most part it has been successful but this one got me. After wearing my Designer T-Shirt to the office a few times I realized there was a huge stain that was camouflaged with in the pattern. Upset for not catching this in the fitting room i refused to turn it into a rag or a work shirt. I held on to the T-Shirt knowing I could do something with it.


Then COVID happened which allowed me to become more comfortable with my #jenome #coverstich machine that I had purchased in 2019. I decided that with the nature of the pattern I could easily remove the stained fabric and replace it with new

I was very lucky to find a complementary fabric at #fabricland. I also love the fit of the t-shirt so i decided at the same time I would copy it to paper so I could remake it again if i wanted too. This was so much easier than normal as I was actually cutting out the stained fabric (yes the whole upper half) including the back sleeves and neck band.


I did not use any stay tape in the shoulder so we will see how long this will last and not stretch out. I was really happy how it worked out and ended up wearing it on my first day back into the office full time.


Bellow you can barely see where the stains were

To the right you can see that with a seam ripper I was able to take apart the top of the T-Shirt so that I was able to use these pieces to verify the stretch of the new pieces.
