When I’m making clothes I tend to make things that are a bit dressier because if I’m going to spend the time making something, it might as well be a bit fancy. But what happens then is that I end up with no everyday wear so I end up wearing regular store bought things (which is completely fine and normal, plus I spent the money on it so I might as well wear it!). But in an effort to make more casual clothes that I can wear on a day-to-day basis, I decided that I was going to make the most simple of them all: plain white tee. But not just any plain white tee: a slouchy boyfriend-fit type of plain white tee!
So I went on the hunt for the fabric I wanted to use. It was important for the material to be low cost because otherwise it wouldn’t be worth the price and time invested – I could just go and buy a t-shirt instead. I found this stretch knit fabric from Fabricland for only $4/m and I used less than half of it. #deal
To make the pattern, I used an old boyfriend t-shirt that I love to wear and mimicked the shape and size.
And I styled it by tying a knot in the front, rolling the sleeves up and pairing it with some high waisted shorts. I gotta tell you, I love this shirt. It’s so comfortable and classic looking. I’ll probably end up making a bunch more!
