I hope you are all getting excited about the fun that we are going to be having next week in celebration of putting off our laundry washing to make new laundry. *This post contains affiliate links because I like to buy fabric, so if you decide to purchase from LJ from a link in this post, you will be supporting my fun little habit.
For today’s feature I stitched up the Emily T-Shirt* from Laela Jeyne Patterns. This pattern is so much more than a t-shirt pattern though, it has quite a few extra fun features that you need to know about.
- Fitted T-Shirt Sizes XS-XXL (0-22)
- Short, Elbow, Long Sleeve Lengths
- Jewel and Scoop Necklines
- Cowl and Hood options
- Feminine Curved Hemline
- With or Without cuffs… If you hate to hem… Cuff all the sleeves!!
- Thumb-hole Option
- Elbow Patches in three designs
- Triangle Accent Option at the hip (Perfect was to add some style and use scraps!)
- Maternity Add-On Available here.
This grey t-shirt is going to be a great summer go-to. Don’t be affraid to sew yourself some basics. I can dress this up with a necklace or throw on a hat for a casual look. I actually got this knit from Wal-mart and LOVE it for a t-shirt. It is thin and stretchy with great drape. I used the scoop neck here and love how it still doesn’t scream LOOK AT MY BOOBS! I feel covered and can still bend down to pick up my kids without giving people a free show. I hemmed the sleeves on this t-shirt, but I also have made the Emily in elbow length with cuffs. I love cuffs! So fast and I don’t have to worry about hemming! Win-Win. The Emily Cuffs are small and keep the look to the shirt stylish. The only thing I struggle with this pattern is the curved hemline. I love the style, but always struggle with getting those even and smooth. This one turned out pretty nice, so I am happy.
