Striped Union St. Tee in mustard and cream

Striped Union St. Tee | a happy stitch

Sometimes it’s the basics that really count, isn’t it? I had just enough of this mustard and cream striped knit fabric leftover from Cloud 9 Fabrics left to make a Union St. Tee.  It’s so soft and cozy, which is good and lovely and all but the color is what really wins me over about this fabric. Perfection.

As for the pattern, it is from Hey June Handmade and is another one of her wardrobe staples.  I’m really beginning to think of her as the goddess of everyday wear.  She makes patterns that make clothes that I want to wear everyday, all day.  Her pattens also makes lots of sense and are written clearly.  Items come together in a logical and easy-to-understand way that is also beautiful and professional-looking.

This tee is definitely in the comfortable and loose category and it’s nice to have those tops but I do think I will stick with making plantain tees in my fancier fabric. I like it’s tighter fit and deeper scoop neck.  Of course, the Union St. Tee comes with a v-neck adaptation and I will need to try that out soon. I love a beautiful v-neck in lighter-weight jersey.  Might have to add that to my fall sewing plan.

Speaking of, this tee is another garment on the completed side of the ledger for my handmade summer wardrobe plan. There is not much summer left but I plan on sharing another (a cardigan) tomorrow so I’m inching closer to reaching my goal!

    Lovely tee, the fabric is fab and always satisfying when is a leftover. This looks a great pattern that I might have to give a go soon.
