The O Tees Finis

The tops are done. I took the pic of the Onion tee this morning and the Ottobre tee this afternoon. As you can see, the pants got progressively more wrinkled as the day wore on. And, yes, I am in North America and wearing capris and flip-flops in December. Hey, it was 85 degrees here today. I've been hearing about the snowstorms happening in the U.S. and I feel little jealousy pangs as I'm sweatin' walking the dogs. The grass is always greener (or whiter!), isn't it?

First up is the Onion:

A close-up of the buttons:

And, on me:

Next, the Ottobre tee. I think I've already said it, but it bears repeating. This fabric is so nice. Wonderful drape, easy to work with, and half the weight of EOS Buttermilk. Poly isn't my usual first choice in fabrics but this is obviously a modern poly and will be quite comfortable, even on a hot day like today. I know I'm going to be wearing this one often; it just plain feels good.

Look ma! No brown binding!

And on me, with a goofy smile:

Now off to edit my pattern reviews on PR to get those u-g-l-y Butterick muslins out of the sidebar widget queue. Or at least moved down.


  1. Nanner nanner, I get the first comment!

    Crap, got so excited to be first I forgot to read the post. Shirts are purty though!! :P (going to read the post now.)

  2. Both T's look great, Debbie! I especially like the second one.

  3. Mmmm! Lookin' great!!! I love the professional-looking button placket on your one top too. Such detail looks so RTW.

  4. Nice tees, Debbie. Too bad we don't live closer - we could be twins in our coffee beans!

  5. Nice tees, Debbie. I like the (boring) buttons on the Onion. They look perfect, but of course anytime you want to do some button and fabric shopping just drop on by. I'm always up for some sewing related shopping. :D

  6. Those buttons look pretty good! And great t's - you can't have too many!

  7. Debbie - those tops turned out great. I just ordered a couple of issues of Ottobre. I know you've said before, but where do you get yours? g

  8. Gaylen,
    I subscribe directly from Ottobre.

    Hope you're feeling back to your old self soon!

  9. "The O Tees Finis"--I didn't know you spoke French, too, eh!!
