The shirt I used as a pattern is a knit tee from Aritzia that I just love. If it is clean, I wear it. It is long enough for my torso, it's comfy, plus it's black. The fabric I used was a cotton/poly knit found at a thrift store in my hometown. Honestly, I strongly dislike the fabric. The color is not a tone of grey and the stripes are just a little too wide. I have the same fabric in grey- which I love but didn't want to use it because I was afraid I'd mess up. As luck would have it the shirt turned out fine and I'm wishing I used the grey.
As a first attempt at sewing for myself I'm pleased. Will I wear the shirt everyday? Probably not but I already have plans for another top and that is what excites me!
