You know the saying "when life hands you lemons, make lemonade?"
Well, to be perfectly honest, when sewing hands me lemons I usually don't make lemonade - instead I just make trash. It's wasteful and lazy and I'm a bit embarrassed to admit how many projects have ended up in the garbage.
On the flip side, it is oddly satisfying to wad up a project that has given you hours of frustration and shove it in a garbage can.

The fabric is from Girl Charlee. It's a fairly thin, drapey jersey that is part cotton and part rayon. I opted for a super-simple version of the tee, leaving off the cuffs, and just hemming the sleeves and bottom with a double needle. Done deal.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to go drink my lemonade.
