...as I continue working on my idea of a perfect Summer Breezes Wardrobe, I've had visions of adding a simple stripped garment to the collection. I've had the knit fabric in my stash for about three years years now. This project used 1 1/2 yards of it. I reached WAY back into my pattern collection and pulled out an old but goody
for a good fitting basic tee shirt. One of the reasons I like this simple pattern is that it has no bust dart. I detest making darts in knit fabrics because they just never press well - IMO. This pattern is dartless. I have also often wondered why some knit patterns have center back seams. I use to think that it was senseless. Little did I know that the center back seam lends itself to better fitting options - found this out during the Essential Tops Sew-A-Long several months go.
I plan to wear my blue and white 3/4 length sleeved stripped t-shirt with a pair of traditional navy bell bottom pants that I made during my Pant's Marathon last month but never posted.
My top's plain and simple, but just what I needed to go with my bells.
I used a twin needle for the hems after deciding on hemming with white rather than blue.
