My Pattern: Oversized Stripe Tee

This Interesting Jersey fabric has been lurking round in my stash for a while.  As a sucker for stripes, I try to get as much variety with them as possible:  So big white gaps and large groups of thin dark lines are somewhat of a variation.

The fabric is extremely lightweight and I bought about 5 metres.  Because of this I wanted to invest at least half of the length I had available into an oversized tee/dress.

So How Did Sew?

Date completed: 30th April 2017

This is an extremely simple sew, I have made many tops like this (check out this post here)

This one I made slightly bigger and longer, this is because I wanted to start gathering and tying the fabric to create different shapes.  I had seen this done with scarves and oversized dresses, all done with just some small elastics.  In exploring Me made wardrobes, one thing I want to explore more is refashion or re wearing the same item differently.  This was just one of the more simple methods:

Note:  I have shown the gathered elastic on the outside, the intention is to wear this on the inside, hidden.  This was purely to demonstrate.

Again, this is not the last of the oversized tees, I will make MANY more as I wear them to death!  I just need ALL the colours.
