This pattern was designed with creating a whole recycled t-shirt outfit in mind. I wanted to create a top that would be a perfect compliment to LilyGiggle's popular Rings-of-Ruffles skirt. I also wanted to create something simple to make with lots of versatility. Here it is...the "Oh Deer!" slim-fit top. Also included is a swing tunic...with the same neckline and sleeves as the top but with a roomier and longer A-line shape that looks great with leggings, Rings-of-Ruffles pants or knit bloomers or even some great skinny jeans. Instructions are given on how to make them from recycled t-shirts. This top whips up lickety-split...LOVE it!

As a special bonus I included the pattern and instructions for making the cute little deer applique but don't let that stop your design imagination! As you can see from the photos there are many ways to embellish this top and tunic...mix up the fabrics, add a flower or two, some pockets or some extra ruffles...have some fun with it!

Don't have a serger??? No worries...not needed! The tutorial is written for both serger and non-serger users with special instructions for each. Afraid of stretch knits??? Don't! Also included are tips and tricks for working with's not nearly as difficult as you might think.

Please note, though, that the only embellishment instruction that is included is for the deer. These tops are fabulous even without embellishment, though, especially when you mix up the fabrics that you use.
