I finished my modern shirt today and I will wear it to work. It is pretty comfy! I made a pattern from a stretchy shirt that I like the fit in the body…a bit snug but better than the boxy tent most t-shirts my size. The alterations I made were, scoop neck not turtle, 3/4 length sleeve not full length and very long with slits on the side (like tops I’ve seen from India). I went for the long option because I hate yanking down shirts that wont cover my tummy and I wanted one that covered my butt so that my stretchy pants would be slightly more suitable outside the gym (because I never go to the gym).
The shirt is called the Marshall’s shirt because that is where I bought the fabric last Saturday.
The photo on the right is a more true reflection of the color.
I probably could wear some sort of tummy control with this shirt but other than that, I am pretty pleased with it. I would do this again. I have enough fabric left over for a tank top I think. May be even a sleeveless mini dress. So bang for the buck: I spent less on making this top and a future tank top than I would buying new ones. (Almost 3/4’s of the money spent was on the trim but DANG it is pretty…so worth it.) And unlike store bought shirts it is totally to my specifications. Most store bought shirts I own have some thing I wish was different. It would still be cheaper to buy used but thrift shopping can be hit and miss.
