BurdaStyle 08/2014 - 120/121 T Shirt with shoulder pleat
It wasn't so long ago I would have thought making a white t shirt instead of buying one to be bonkers, but increasingly I find they are either made from poor quality see through material or they are expensive. So when I found some decent white jersey at a great price I picked some up.
Still I couldn't make myself make a plain white t and wanted something with a bit of interesting detail - enter BurdaStyle 08/2014 - 120 / 121. I made a mix of the 2 views, the curved hem from 120 with the short sleeves from 121.
I really enjoyed making this, the drape detail and back shoulder seams are great details. However wearing it, the extra fabric in the drape tends to distort the neckline as you can see below and even on the dressform now I look at these pictures, which is a shame. (Or perhaps I stretched it out while sewing?) Maybe this is one t shirt that would benefit from a more lightweight fabric. Oh well, it's a white t shirt, it will get worn!
