Hey there! It’s been awhile, amirite?! I’m doing my best to update as much as I can, but as usual, life gets in the way. March was SO busy, but I’m looking forward to future projects (sewing, crafting, blogging)! I’m working on some blog stuff as you may (or may not) be able to see with different graphics/captions. Thanks for your patience if it looks weird from time to time!
Let’s talk about what I actually got to make this month! There’s a lot of love about the Union St. Tee pattern by Hey June. So much in fact that I have about 10 (hello, assembly line!) planned to make for summer. Talk about a great staple for my wardrobe! More on that in a future post, though.
I originally made this pattern for my sister, and I fell in love with the fact that I could make a simple v-neck tee for a lot less than purchasing it in a store. The best part about this pattern is how many options you have! There are two choices for the neckline and three sleeve length choices.
While I love a good 3/4 length sleeve, summer is right around the corner. So I chose to sew up the v-neck option with short sleeves in this fabulous bird patterned Dakota Jersey Knit from Fabric.com.
I’m usually not a fan of short sleeves on myself, but this pattern makes me less self-conscious about my arms. It’s also easy to throw on under a blazer (as seen above) or cardigan.
This fabric sewed up like a dream. Another great plus to this pattern: if you sew up a short sleeved version you only need ONE YARD of fabric!
I have nothing bad to say about this pattern. It really is a must-have in your basic/staple pattern toolbox. Have you made a Union St. Tee? I’d love to see!
