Closet Staples: The Perfect T-Shirt

Closet staples are the foundation upon which your wardrobe is built. I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a few versatile basics that you love!

Today, I’d like to introduce you to one of mine, The Perfect T-Shirt.

I can dress it down with jeans, or dress it up with a scarf and flowing skirt; like any good basic, the possibilities are endless.

I intended to make this the most wearable t-shirt possible, so I used our incredibly soft Batik Knit.
The pattern is aptly named “The Perfect T-Shirt”, a design by Pamela’s Patterns.
The description on the back of the packaging really attracted me to this pattern:
“…addresses the most common fitting issues we face – high round back, forward shoulder, full hip and bust, and a good fit through the shoulder and neck.”
It certainly is the perfect t-shirt! This pattern gives three neckline options and four sleeve options.

I loved this pattern so much that I made three!
I chose the higher Jewel Neckline for all of the shirts.
The fabric used for the first shirt, featured above, is one of our favorite knits, Sea Glass.
The second shirt, featured below, was made with our Bright Firestorm knit.
If you like the fabric used in the third picture, we still carry Cranberry Wine in bolt ends.
And if you’re looking for an entirely different color to make your new favorite t-shirt out of, we have many to choose from!
