I decided to jump in to Katie’s Back 2 Basics week. It was the perfect excuse to sew myself some basic slouchy tees that glide over post-baby lumps. I love my three new tees and might be wearing them way too much. I thrifted a slouchy tee with the perfect fit. It was too transparent, so I cut it up to use it as a pattern.

Pattern: Slouchy tee pattern
Fabric: Thick heathered jersey from the Walmart remnant bin. (Can you believe that?) It has the most amazingly soft texture and drape even though it’s pretty thick.
Time: 30 minutes
Total Cost: $4

Pattern: Slouchy tee pattern. This jersey was a little weak, so the neckline is too open. I might go back and fix it.
Fabric: A heathered beige from a friend that I fabric stamped with a kite stamp. It was very transparent so I did a double layer.
Time: 45 min
Total Cost: $2

Pattern: Slouchy tee pattern altered to have a hi-lo hem.
Fabric: A thin, soft jersey that is a little hard to sew with but has a great drape.
Time: 30 min
Total Cost: $2
