Is anyone going to the International Quilt Festival here in Houston at the George R. Brown in a couple weekends? Maybe we could meet up.

I made a Trifecta Top. All I can say is I love this shirt. I used a Robert Kaufman Laguna stretch knit from Fabric.com, 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 fabric.com 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.
