Union St Tee - Peacock

Union St Tee - Hey June Patterns. I purchased this pattern/muslined last summer, this version has an improved fit and has an added FBA (included in the download). I purchased the peacock feather jersey from John Lewis with the intention of sewing a tried and tested jersey-project. The combination of a relaxed tshirt and busy print reminds me of a tshirt I used to wear - dad's tshirt from the 1970s!
My earrings are Miss J Designs. I wore them on a very bumpy bike ride and one of them spun round but I didn't notice in the photos as I looked afterwards! The triangles suited the angular look of the V neck. 
I wasn't sure which side up this fabric is - either way looks good!  This spendlove peacock print jersey also comes in blue tone, £12/m: John Lewis. I think this top only uses 1 metre, so it's worth using a nice fabric once you have your fit right. I haven't purchased any fabric for a while, but I love this print so much I want to go for the other colourway too. I sold the Tatty Devine moon pendant.
I plan to sew this top again in white cotton jersey with the front pocket. I am wearing last year's sewing for summer clothes at the moment!
