DIY Style: Pop of Color on the Perfect Tee

DIY Shirt! Super comfortable and easy to sew!

This week I’ll be sharing some of my favorite outfits inspired by the Unbiased Collection (See my Gwen, Diamond and Denver). I’ve got a wardrobe full of outfits from these patterns and they’re serving me well! First up is the outfit I wore today. The perfect tee and jeans.

I designed this top pattern with jeans in mind. I love that it’s a t-shirt but it’s not frumpy and it really does make me feel my best. Even if you don’t have anything to hide in your midsection it is still totally flattering.

You can see the yoke detail in the back is just as bold as the front. I lengthened the back of this one a bit for more of a tunic length. 

Pattern: Adora 

Options: Top length (there’s also a dress option), tank sleeves.

Fabric: soft cotton/lycra knit and linen. I believe they are both from JoAnn at some point. The linen suits this yoke well. It’s got enough structure to keep it’s shape well but is flexible enough to hang well. I wore this today and matched my daughter

Size: I’m a size 4 for my high bust/full bust and a size 5 in the waist and hips. I cut a size 4 and tapered out to a size 5 for the waist/hips. 

Alterations: I lengthened this top a little in front and back. I can’t remember exactly how much because this was one of the first I made.

I don’t usually wear much color but I’ll make an exception for this top. It’s the most comfortable thing I own!

If you like the Adora top you can pick up the pattern in the Unbiased Collection for Pattern Anthology. It’s only available in the collection until next year.
