Not so basic, Basic Tee!
The Basic Tee pattern is a great relaxed fit t-shirt, but outside of bed, I'm not so much a t-shirt girl. So, when I got this pattern, I knew it was going to have to be a fancier version than your standard tee. I got this great metallic knit and coordinating eyelash trim lace from Mood Fabrics and thought it would make a great Basic Tee.
The sleeves are NOT knit, which was worrisome since this pattern calls for 50% stretch, but I sized up one size and they worked out fine. The shoulder and sleeve are so slouchy on the pattern that they are very forgiving if you're not following the rules exactly! They do sell some gorgeous stretch laces out there, so go for that if you're not a dare devil like me!
