As I pledged to wear all handmade items with the exception of jeans, cardigans & undergarments, I needed some new t-shirts. I already needed new t-shirts, and knew MMM13 was a good motivation to actually sew them. I cut out two t-shirts yesterday afternoon and sewed the black one last night. Such a quick and easy project. And such a wardrobe staple.
I made the size XL without any alterations. It is a pretty perfect fit. Next time I will add 5-10cm to the length. The sleeves are a little short but I do like them that way.
I picked up this wool jersey on my recent shopping trip with my mother in law. It is a nice sturdy weight. I was in Rathdowne yesterday morning and they still had some, plus quite a range of colours and weights.
Pattern: Tessuti Alexa T-Top, long sleeve version, size XL
Fabric: Black Merino Wool Jersey from Rathdowne Fabrics
In other news, I got my haircut yesterday. To say I hate it would be an understatement. I know it's only hair and it will grow back. But it really annoys me that I went to the hairdresser with relatively good hair yesterday morning and walked out with a crazy odd style. Sigh.
