Voila! My first tee. I think I’ve found my thing: lounge wear. Or maybe I’m just obsessed with the amazingly soft striped jersey cotton that I scored in the fashion district downtown. This is the third item I’ve made with this fabric — a romper, a t-shirt and a pair of PJ shorts. I have bits and pieces left over so I think I can squeeze in a mini bandeau, and if I get really creative and hone in on my quilting skills, maybe a tank. We shall see!
I’d love to get my hands on some linen, ikat, and obviously more jersey cotton. Time to go shopping! The next tee I make will have a smaller scoop (this one is so large, I’d either have to wear a tank top underneath or save it for a lazy Sunday afternoon where a bikini top is acceptable). I also would love to experiment with roll-up/button/latch combo sleeves. I’m not sure of the technical term (is there one?) but you know what I’m talking about, right?
