Soon to be renamed “the t-shirt blog”

Hi! Yes, it’s another t-shirt. Right now I am all about the quick & dirty, one-day sewing jobs. I wear t-shirts pretty much on a daily basis, so I am gearing up for the winter. This is the same pattern I have used a couple of times–the Tamanegi Kobo t-shirt Fujiko. This is size medium, and I brought the neckline up a bit (I don’t really do scoop necks). I got the fabric at the Fabric Depot outdoor sale for a couple bucks. It’s very stretchy and drapey, so I’m sure the polyester content is up there, but hey, it is very soft and cozy and surprisingly warm.

The cool thing about this pattern is it is raglan in the back and looks like a set-in sleeve in the front. The pattern itself is for a bodysuit style, but you don’t have to do the whole snap crotch thing if you don’t want to (and I certainly did NOT want to). I plan to make a couple more of these shirts. Dull, perhaps, but I will be cozy!

    Ack, snap crotch is so, so ugh! I would rather see it as a tshirt.

    I am loving it! Stripes are my favorite. The raglan sleeve on the back is fantastic.

    Very cute! Your blog is so fun to read… thank you for your posts. I took your tip on mascara a while back and bought a japanese mascara that they happened to carry at Sephora. It is the FIRST mascara that has not smudged on me. THANKS!

    Loving how you matched up the stripes all opposite in the back. So cute!

    You make dullness so attractive. I love the shirt and may try to make it as well.

    I just linked this post at Ravelry … hope you don’t mind (er, what I really hope is that if that causes something bad that you will forgive me!). I am delurking to tell you that I love your blog (I even clicked on your brother’s head and am enjoying his exploits). Also, this t-shirt pattern has caused me to become obsessed with knitting a seamless sweater with raglans in back and saddle-shoulders in front, which is why I linked at Rav. Anyway – thanks for the knitting inspiration and the great recipes too!
