If you’re a long time reader of this blog, then you know that I occasionally make shirts for myself with “unconventional prints.” My latest is a prime example. In fact, my entire rationale for making my first purchase from Jumping June Textiles was because of this print!
I’ve gotten way behind on my sewing list, but thought I would tackle my most recent pile of fabrics. I knew I wanted to make a tee out of this print, but didn’t want it to be too fitted, so someone would think that I raided the children’s department… so I wound up settling on the Union St. Tee, which had a longer hemline and a bit of a boxier fit.
The fabric is a lot beefier than what I’ve made in the past with this pattern, so I wasn’t as thrilled with how boxy it really turned out (you can see in the photo on the left). After waffling back and forth on what I wanted to do, I wound up slimming down the sides some to make it slightly more fitted so I’m much happier with the end result.
