    I would probably go with tank top, but if it suits your style overlaying it over any other stretch fabric for a regular shirt or skirt. :)

    You generally use a pattern that calls for stretch fabric. Those garments are less shapely doesn’t normally have darts and is usually a casual wear piece.

    Stretch lace T shirts are all the rage right now. You REALLY need to use a serger on stretch lace or it unravels like crazy. If you don’t have one, use stretch sewing methods, and sandwich the fabric between layers of tissue for the actual sewing. I know it’s a pain to pick it all out of the stitches, but it really pays to go carefully with this stuff!

    All the pattern companies have great T patterns at the moment, but one of these from Burdastyle will be fine:

    My daughter wears her stretch lace cami over a cap sleeve t-shirt. And yes, use a serger, if you have one. If you don’t have a serger, use the stretch stitch on your sewing machine, then finish with zig-zag. Not the best solution, but somewhere to start from.

    Something saucy! Or even – Day dress, zumba pants, leg warmers, bra and pant set, skull cap……. If you have enough maybe you could just play with layering, textures, colours – There really is sooooo much to choose from.
