Since a basic tee is rather boring, I’ll be brief. I made this. The end.
Okay, not really. I have no idea what this knit fabric is called, but I got it at The French Seam a year ago when they were having an awesome anniversary sale. Since we had to drive rather far to get there, I spent loads and bought gobs of indie patterns as well (my Crescent Skirt pattern and orange linen it’s made of–seen here–are from there, too). I spent more on this knit than I really wanted, but I loved it so, and I still have enough left over to make another tee–yay! Here is the print…if you know what it’s called for reference, feel free to let me know. I don’t normally buy “designer” fabric, but I think it was from France??
I used my “Don’t Be Lazy!” Shirt pattern (forever more will be known as the DBL shirt, fyi). I cut the sleeve to be a cap sleeve, and I’m quite happy with it. After sewing it all up, it seemed rather boxy with no waist definition, so I took the waist seam line in a bit. The weight of this fabric is a little heavier than the DBL shirt, so the neckline doesn’t lay quite as flat. I’m hoping after a wash that it will straighten out a little more.
I think that’s all that can be said! I love it, and I had to remind myself all day at the Children’s Museum that I actually made the shirt that was so very comfortable. So, I’m calling it a win!
Thanks for looking! 🙂
Oh yeah, and added this one, too.
