Boring Black Tee

Well from that title I’m sure you can figure how I feel about this one. It took me forever only because I just wasn’t that excited about it, and then to top it off I’m pretty sure I sewed the front pieces together the wrong way making the neckline much more plunging than it is supposed to be. But I think it’s still wearable, and besides by the time I realized what happened I was nearly done and there was no way I was going back to try and fix it. I’ll just do it right next time, yes I do think this is a good pattern that I’ll make again even though it was boring. If it bother me too much when I wear it I’ll just put a little insert in there to raise the neckline.

    It’s nice! Not too low cut at all imho. Or maybe I’m just quite vulgar myself most days ;-)

    Impressive execution.

    The most simple things have to be done amazingly well to look right. You succeeded!!!!!!

    You made the plunge, and have taken the plunge – it’s chic.

    You could pair this with a wide belt and full skirt to balance things out – just a notion.

    Is the guy in the photo behind you wearing a flower pot???
