I’m a jeans and tee girl 95% of the time- even in summer time it’s usually cut-off denim shorts and a simple tee. The new Classic Tee from Love Notions will be my new best friend! It’s the perfect relaxed fit basic t-shirt and the big bonus- you can get it for FREE!
There are multiple sleeve and neckline options making this such a versatile pattern too! There are crew, scoop, and v-neck choices and short, elbow and long sleeves so you can use this pattern no matter what season you’re in.
I want to wear this version every. single. day. I literally almost cried when I had to take it off. It’s so darn soft and lovely. I used this modal jersey from Cali Fabrics. It was my first time sewing modal and now I want a whole wardrobe of it. It’s a bit thicker than rayon spandex and so much softer. The drape is amazing and it’s just thick enough to glide over all the little lumps and bumps. It sewed up so nice and easily too! Excuse me while I go buy a million more yards…
I’ve done a handful of v-necks in my day and they still always intimidate me. They take a little longer than a basic crew or scoop neck but are so flattering and well worth the little extra time. I love the depth of this one- not too low for my super modest tastes.
This version is about as basic as it gets. Everyone needs a good white tee in their wardrobe and this one is perfect.
I used a white double brushed polyester for this version. I love the drape and thickness of this fabric. It’s also super soft and plush. The only drawback of dbp is that it doesn’t breath as well as a natural fiber. I still wear dbp on most days, only avoiding it on super warm days where I’ll be outside in the heat for extended periods.
