Stripes and polo tops made sense to me, especially for weekend wear. The Jaywalk fabric from Tessutis was perfect for these tops.
I had been mulling about how to use this stripe fabric and created a Stripe pinterest board. And then I realised, I wear polo type tops on weekends anyway, hence a couple of Jaywalk tees.
Here’s where I started. The Alexa tee front piece is divided into 3 angled sections.
I’ve numbered each section and sewn these together before sewing the top.
The top piece has the stripes running across the body so this was a key piece to get right.
Then I had to match up the stripes on the sleeve.
Here’s how I had to pin the centre back together.
The collar and collar facing were taken from Butterick 3386 that I’ve used before.
See how the lines match on the sleeve and under the sleeve?
Once I’d figured out the construction, I made this again.
And I promptly wore this version last weekend.
Excuse this rear view.
Please feel free to make your own version.
