These are now my everyday staples – comfy, cool, cotton, easy to wear, easy to wash, wear anywhere t-shirts. The pattern also includes a long sleeved option, or a v-neck too.
Everyone here in the Cayman Islands lives in shorts and t-shirt so now I have the option to sew my own t-shirts, I'll never have to scour the shops again looking for one that doesn't have Cayman Islands printed across the front! I can see me making a LOT of these over the coming year. I think they would be great in a print fabric too, something less cotton and more slinky would make a great dressy version too.
The pattern for these comes as part of the Sewing with Knits course, along with the Fleece Hoodie that I've already made. Still to come – the v-neck t-shirt, shorts, yoga pants, skirt and dress. All the patterns come included in the course price which makes it excellent value for money.
Once again, apologies for the photos – my husband is a very rushed and reluctant photographer, but in these windy conditions is still better than trying to balance a tripod and run into the right place using the timer. But it does mean you get to see things as they are – no fancy posing for me!
What I love about this course, as well as all the stuff I am learning, is that the focus is on every day clothes. I know when I go into the fabric shop I am always picking up the most beautiful fabrics, embroidered, velvets, satins, sequins and more. Or something suitable for a beautiful dress – but I just don't wear these clothes every day and I hate to spend a lot of money on fabric and then hours and hours of sewing to make something I might only wear once. I'm really enjoying spending my time making practical everyday clothes, similar to the Ready to Wear I might have bought instead.
