Simple to Chic T-Shirt Remakes

When you get the opportunity work with a friend, work doesn’t feel like work.  My last big sewing adventure in 2015 was no exception. I had the pleasure of working with my good friend, Nancy Zieman, on our latest joint venture – Simple to Chic T-Shirt Remakes on Sewing with Nancy.  What a fun way to end the year!headshotBL

It all started last April at Nancy’s home in Wisconsin. During a social visit, we started brainstorming about a new project – an updated version of our popular Designer Necklines collection. A few sketches, a page or two of notes and we were off on a new journey.  Of course, the process takes a couple of months and is all done by long distance (thanks to email and text messages!), but before you know it, we had the makings of a fun new technique – Simple to Chic T-Shirt Remakes.blueBL

And then of course, it was time to shop. We sampled tons of t-shirts to find the right ones for this technique. We wanted to make sure the technique would work on readily-available blanks so we designed around ladies’ shirts at Kohl’s, Target and WalMart. We figured just about everyone has access to one of those three retail stores.  When I look back on the receipts, it looks like I was outfitting a softball team – I was buying t-shirts by the dozen!blackBL

But it was well worth it because this is my absolute favorite collection that I’ve ever designed. I love how wearable it is. When we photographed the samples at our studio here in Dallas, the stylists wanted to know where they could buy the embroidered shirts. I took that as a good sign. And Nancy and I had similar reactions when we presented the program on Wisconsin Public TV. Another good sign!grayBL

So what’s so different about this collection? It features classic designs that mimic ready-wear and a nifty finish that’s completed in the hoop for professional results. There are neckline, sleeve and side seam designs so you get a total package.  You can watch the series on your local PBS station or online at WPBS.

Here’s your assignment this week:

Last week, Nancy asked her blog readers what t-shirt they liked best. How about if you do the same here so we can see if both sets of readers have similar taste?  Just tell us what t-shirt is your favorite and we’ll pick a random comment to win a copy of Simple to Chic T-Shirt Remakes!

      I loved all of the ones you did. I especially love the brown, I have a brown blouse that has similar embroidery and I love it. But I can’t wear it anymore. So now I can copy it.

        Just in case, I read it incorrectly, I typically use Gildan. It’s a great tee and nice hand and soft too. Several different styles now to.

    Hi Eileen! I have seen you on multiple programs demonstrating your techniques and tips. I’ve already tried to order the book which accompanies this program but it won’t be availible for several weeks! however something with a cotton spandex mix and softness against my skin would be #1. There’s a gal in the LA area who gets the best material for T-shirts and her fabric is sturdy but very soft! On the ready made side Guilden (I think that’s the way it’s spelled!) is soft and comes in various thicknesses. I love to embroider! Do you have your business in Dallas? I’m going to be there in a few weeks and would love to take a tour that is if one is offered! Thanks for the opportunity to share my thoughts!!

    I am new to embroidery. My friend passed away and I was the lucky recipient of her machine. My sewing pals kid me about starting embroidery. They have the impression that I will make a shirt with a big peacock or oversize flowers. I also appreciate that your blanks came from Walmart, Target and Kohls. Definitely in my wheelhouse. I hope I can win the design so I can show my friends that embroidery can be elegant. I would wear the grey one because it has my colors.

    I love the whole idea and would like to have tee shirts with any of the patterns. Because I am partial to the Greek Key design, I would try that design first.

    I like the blue w/ snowflakes, but my fave is the one Eileen is wearing!! I did this a few years ago, with a black tee with too-long long-sleeved tunic & turtleneck. I had to shorten the sleeves, then changed it to hip-length with an round-neck split-front & added crochet/chain-stitch tie strings. Whew! It was a lot of work & I’ll bet you found an easier way to do them! I used the excess from the sleeves & the bottom hem, for the facings — almost nothing leftover!

    Hi Eileen, I absolutely love these t-shirts! While shopping for a new sewing machine I considered buying one with an embroidery unit. But then I thought: Is it worth it ? Am I going to use it ? Watching these “Simple to Chic t-shirt remakes” epsiodes of you and Nancy made me understand the magic of an embroidery machine: Apart from the beautiful designs there’s the precision sewing and placement guides. Amazing ! I’m definitely going to buy one this weekend.

    My absolute favorite is the blue shirt with the white flowers.

    I just saw the Sewing with Nancy on my local PBS station that features the t-shirt remakes. I love them all! I am a retired Sign Language Interpreter, and my wardrobe is full of very boring Sign Language Interpreter clothes. For many years I have worn JC Penney St. Johns Bay solid color long/short sleeve jewel neck tees. They are all dark colors, as required by my job. They last a long time, are comfortable and they are a good price, if you watch the Sales. But, I am now left with more than a few plain, dark, boring tees! I was going to donate my tees just to get rid of the boring clothes, but wait, I don’t have to! I love these designs, and I can’t wait to get this CDset! My retired wardrobe will be renewed! I would request that you start doing instant downloads. We are full time RVers now, and I have to be careful of extra weight. I can’t have a lot of CDs, I don’t have the space, either.
