There Ain’t No Tee in Edgy

I wear a lot of T shirts. I don’t make a lot of T shirts. I have no prob finding RTW shirts that fit well, and I’d rather spend my sewing time on unique items.

But I wanted a cobalt blue tee for my edgy work wardrobe, so I thought I’d take a basic and elevate it a skosh with a contrasting neckband.

This is from New Look 6330, a pattern I bought for the cool drapey cardigan. I needed a tee with a pretty wide neckline and 3/4 sleeves, so this worked fine.

The main fabric is cotton jersey. The neckband is viscose jersey left over from a cardigan I made few years ago.

The directions for the pattern are a little silly. You don’t need to see a sleeve cap easeline in a knit, especially if you sew the sleeves in flat. I made my usual sloping shoulder adjustment on the right side and sewed some clear elastic at the shoulders to prevent stretching.

Here’s the look with my edgy skirts and cardigan.

Looking forward to wearing these outfits this fall.

I live in Connecticut, USA with my husband and my dog, in an old house outfitted with a sewing room, a garden, an orchard, and a big liquor cabinet.
