Rockstar Trifecta

I made a Trifecta Top. All I can say is I love this shirt. I used a Robert Kaufman Laguna stretch knit from, and it is perfectly slouchy and comfortable. I made the 3/4 sleeve version with low scoop and inset.

Check out my inset. Yes, it is faux leather. I think I am such a rock star with my fake leather t-shirt. The faux leather is actually a leather knit from as well I got to use as a trim on a dress I have in my head. I ran it through the washer and dryer and it held up great. I wanted to use a smidge for this inset. I really do think I'm cool.

The shirt has raglan sleeves and is just a bit fitted. My fabric was pretty substantial, so it doesn't have much stretch. I think with a drapey, thin fabric it would look totally different.

I was pretty lazy on the hem and just serged them all and left them. I think it adds to the look of the shirt. Like I said, I feel way too cool to be bothered hemming a shirt.


  1. I am cool as well - I didn't hem my maxi-skirt that I wore all summer.
    Like the inset - need to find my own faux-leather knit.

  2. Yes you do look cool and the faux leather inset is perfect.

  3. How did I miss this? I came across it on PR and followed it back here, and now I'm wondering why I didn't see it on my blog roll. Love your cute (and cool!) top. Granted, I may be a little biased toward grey-bodied black-sleeved raglan-sleeved casual tops at the moment, but yours had me at 'faux-leather inset'. :)
