T-shirts Times Two

A tale of two t-shirts.

The orange top is Muna and Broad Tarlee t-shirt, cut in the same size as my last two, size D.

I intended to cut the sleeves full length, but ran out of fabric, so I ended up with three-quarter length sleeves. 

The fabric is a bamboo/lycra jersey knit in a perfectly autumn pumpkin-y orange, from my local fabric shop. Slinky and soft.

Very happy with this t-shirt! A perfect fall layering piece.

The stripey one is the Seamwork Devon pattern, turned into a boxy t-shirt like I did this past spring. I really like the black striped Devon from the spring, so I made its negative, white with black stripes.

This is the same size, size 16 from the curvy size range (which is probably a size down from my current measurements).

I cut the pattern at the hip markings (plus a deep hem) and applied a neckband instead of a cowl neck.

The fabric I used is a white and black striped jersey that I bought in Vietnam several years back. I'm not sure the content, but maybe a rayon blend of some sort? Beefier than the orange jersey, but still with plenty of drape.

Pretty happy with this t-shirt, too! Perfect for layering.


  1. So exciting! Your "local" fabric store in Montpelier was the first fabric store I visited since covid hit us. (September.) It was a thrill to touch fabric IN PERSON!
    I have to ask if you've seen the huge stone zipper in Barre? Worth a trip! Enjoy your new comfy tees.

  2. I am so excited that you are “local”! I have seen the huge zipper in Barre and I have been to the fabric store in Montpelier! I got some beautiful French terry there. I just started following your blog.

  3. Love this shirt on you - the fit is perfect!

  4. Love the orange shirt on you - the color is gorgeous and the fit is perfect. I usually don't like high necklines but I'm digging it.
