Here’s my finished Birds on the Wires Tee. We played with color and perspective a little bit, before settling on some inside shots.
This is the basic t-shirt I am offering as a free pattern. It comes in two “types” of sizes: V and II. A “V” size has a difference of 8″ (20cm) or more between the waist and bust measurements. A “II” has a difference of 8″ (20cm) or less between the bust and waist.
This pattern is intended for a nice medium weight knit, like the Birds on the Wires print I made for Spoonflower. I hadn’t looked at their fabrics for years; they now offer a rather nice variety of apparel fabrics. This is the organic cotton knit- very yummy.
However, I think this pattern will work for a variety of fabrics- I’d love to see the variations possible. I’m not much of a t-shirt wearer myself, but I do have an active and generally casual lifestyle. For some reason, I find that my beloved “button-down” shirts read as “dressy” even when I don’t feel dressy. This is one attempt to bridge that gap.
