This may just be my favorite tee. Today. I loves it. (Does your inner Gollum ever peek through?) It’s called the Basic Tee by Seamly. (I found it on IndieSew via a post on another blog, for those of you who want to hunt down the pattern.) I love the casual, loose, boyfriend fit. Look at those sleeves! Heaven? Yeah. Think so.
It still has a scoop neck for a touch of femininity, and it’s long and lovely. To top it off, I found this shady, dusty, slate blue bamboo (100%) from Koshtex on etsy to carve it out of.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of the cutting out, and putting together process. So you just get to ogle my fantastic photography skills (ha) of the finished product. It’s a very loose relaxed fit pattern.
I first made a size small.. It drowned me. I’m crediting that experience with my becoming a pirate. Anyway! – then I chopped it and re-vamped it into a size XS. Might not be perfect, but, as I’m not, I don’t expect my sewing to be. Sure is nice when it is, though… Or it would be.
I did raise the neckline about an inch for my personal preferences. I’m seriously considering lengthening the whole thing (the pattern) to about my knees with kind of a side-split hem, notched, higher straight hem in the front than the back (jeez, there must be an accurate word for that which I am not in possession of). Wouldn’t that be a BEST EVER TEE SHIRT DRESS?? Methinks so. But, in the meantime, here is the tee.
