TNT tee - boat neck

Here is tee #3 for the Pattern Review TNT tee contest.  I have #4 complete.  It just needs photos.  I'm trying to decide whether to whip up one more tonight.  I guess I'll see how I feel about it tonight.  :-)
 The only changes I made to the pattern were to make a wider boat neck and rolled short sleeves.  To hold the sleeve roll in place, I just did some stitching at the underarm, and I adjust the outside when I put it on in the morning.  The rolls stay fine throughout the day.
 The fabric is a very thin rayon knit from Pennie Fabrics in Sarasota (AMAZING fabric store I finally went to check out - well worth a 40+ minute drive).  Shoot, I'd probably be willing to do the drive to work there part time.  It has narrow yellow and white stripes.  Since the fabric was quite sheer, I doubled it for the entire tee.  This made a very neat neckline with no need for binding.  I just top-stitched it.
 I'm wearing the tee with my recent denim skirt.  I can't believe it has been a month since I made this skirt.  It still feels brand new even though I wear it all the time.
