Lace Overlay Tee: An Anthropologie Knock-Off

In my quest to find more of my sporty/feminine style, I came across Anthropologie's Sun Medallion Pullover. It was the perfect mix of casual and feminine. Within a few days I found the perfect lace remnant in the remnant bin, so I quickly sewed up this simple tee.
I used some cream jersey for the basic tee. I also used the lace for the neckband which I don't recommend. It was a big struggle and it looks just okay. I should have used rib knit!
I love it! I didn't realize that just a simple lace overlay could make such a big difference!

  2. Oooh- I like this. I don't know what my personal style is, and many of the things posted or linked here for women aren't to my taste, but I do like this a lot! And even though it was harder to work with, I like the lace around the collar- I think rib knit would make it look too casual.

    1. PS- Just checked out the Anthropologie link- I like yours better! Why? The lace neck, the more fitted style, the full length lace (no waist 'cuff' with rib knit at the bottom), more tee than sweater... so I'm pinning yours instead!

  3. Is your lace stretchy? Or is it just a piece of lace? I found some clearance lace tanks for $1, and I bought one to do something like this with. It is white, so I am now trying to figure out if I want it white on white or do a different color.
    Thanks for sharing, this turned out so cute!

  8. I like how yours looks over how the one on anthropology looks! Which pattern did you use for your main shirt design?
