A Pair of Red T-shirts






What is more basic for summer than t-shirts? I live in them once the hot, hot July days hit, it is the only thing that helps with the Mid-West heat and humidity.




I am working on sewing up all my Style Maker Fabric order from April and these are garments two and three.  I went with easy t-shirts and when I am short of sewing time, t-shirts are my go-to items.



I went with my go-to basic t-shirt pattern, Hey June's Union St. Tee, I like the relaxed look and the scoop neckline.  The relaxed look is good for a  Modal Jersey  which can get a bit clingy. 




For my second t-shirt, I used McCall's 7721, it is just a fun twist on a tee.  I had just enough of the red modal for the body of the t-shirt and a bit of red stripe from Dolman Shirt for the sleeves on View B.  I made this before and I really love this shirt, it is one I reach for quite often.




I forgot on this version and need to update my pattern instructions, to lower the neckline just a bit.



I cut the sleeve ruffles one layer at a time and placed the first on RST so I could match up my stripes.  Now each of the ruffles match. Also, on my previous shirt and this one, I did not hem the ruffle at all.  I felt it kept it cleaner and my knit won't ravel.


I like both of these shirts but the McCall's 7721 is my favorite, it just has a bit of fun to it.  I feel like this outfit is me and just makes me feel comfortable.  Do you have an outfit that just says this is me?  I love my dresses, culottes and other fun garments but at heart I am a t-shirt and jeans girl.

  16. My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; emutemple@gmail.com , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.
