J.Stern T-shirt and BWOF pants finished!

I love this t-shirt!  I used a 4-way stretch so it was possible to use the stripe either vertically or horizontally:

And the pants are the April 2009 #118 from BurdaWorld of Fashion.

Both of these were new patterns for me, so fitting adjustments were required. 

I'll write a review at patternreview as soon as I have time.
If highly recommend this pattern for a cute alternative to a boring old t-shirt.
MAKE SURE YOU MEASURE!  This runs small.  Don't even look at the back of the envelope, look at the actual tissue pattern and compare a TNT or just pull out the tape measure and make sure it's big enough.  I ended up with a XL.  I would have been very upset if I had cut a medium and ruined the pattern.
Luckily I always have to alter the shoulders and I always compare a TNT pattern, so I could see it was running very small.
But, boy this is a FAST project and her instructions are excellent!!
Happy Monday! I gotta hit the gym, like NOW.
