Perfect Summer Tee Week: Solid and Printed

Today I'm guest posting at Once Upon A Sewing Machine in their awesome Sewing for Boys series! They have guests every month along with boy tutorials and pattern reviews! You'll also want to check out the pictures of Henry. He has never been as photogenic as he was in these photos!

I made two more tees from my perfect tee pattern. I needed a plain solid shirt. As a DIYer I rarely have a solid shirt or for very long because I do something to it. I decided if I added a little contrast to it, then it would be able to stand on it's own (and I wouldn't refashion it). I love the contrast neckband; it's just one of my things. This is also the only shirt that matches my chevron maxi skirt.
For the other shirt, I had some leftover floral fabric that I didn't know what to do with. It's a really pretty white and plum, and the fabric is really, really soft. I was barely able to make a shirt from the remnant I had. I had to squeeze it in kind of on the bias to make it work. I'm not usually a floral person, but I really like this print and really like how this shirt came out! 
Come back tomorrow to see how to make a flyaway tee from a basic tee pattern!

  1. Love. I am not a floral type person either, but that one is so pretty. And it would be easy to dress all year round, and dress up as well.
