New tee for me

This is a tee I made for myself using some of my dyed fabric. Pattern is one of my staples, Kwik Sew 3003 with my own jewel neck (sounds better than plain old crew neck).
I actually sewed this only using my overlocker and coverstitcher. See, when I first bought my OL, I used to sew tees with it, but I did not like how much necklines came out. For whatever reason, I have been avoiding my OL for knits because I felt more in control on my SM. But that may change this year. I ended up using some picot elastic to finish the neckline, so avoided the wonky neckline anyway.
