Yes, ANOTHER JCrew tee copy

I know, I do these a lot.  This time I'm copying the Cascade Ruffle Tee.
This was my inspiration.  Looks pretty easy to copy, right?  I used a long-sleeved tee from Old Navy that already had the right neckline.
I cut off the sleeves as usual and cut them into strips.  I ruffled them and looked at the inspiration photo to place them where I wanted them... I used a disappearing ink pen.  Whoo, those are fun!
So, here's how it turned out!
 Ta-da!  I love the asymmetry.

  5. I really love this one. It's so simple but so perfect. And you totally can't tell the difference between yours and the original! (actually, i like your sleeve hems better!)

  6. Great job! I actually snagged this from J.Crew for $13 so I didn't attempt to make it. But yours turned out GREAT.

  12. Thanks, everyone!
    I used a regular small-ish needle, but I imagine there are special ball-point ones or something for knits. I think you'd be fine with a 10 or something.
    If any of you do try it, I'd love to see pics!
