Perhaps not the most exciting post because these are more of the Men’s Metro Tee by Liesl and Co. (See my previous versions here), but you can tell a pattern is a good one when you just keep making more!
All these fabrics are from Girl Charlee, who are just the most brilliant online shop for jerseys. I bought a whole load when they last had a discount, so there are other jersey projects in the pipeline! The ones I chose for Matt were a heather grey cotton spandex, motorcycles on grey cotton and a monochrome triangle cotton jersey. I also got some darker charcoal grey baby rib for contrast.
For one of these t-shirts, I kept it very simple with the heather grey jersey, but didn’t want it to bee too boring! I used the charcoal grey rib for the neckband and found it very stretchy so I did remove a little extra length.
Then to co-ordinate, I drafted a very simple band for the sleeve hem. This does make hemming the sleeve very simple, and the sleeves in this version are slightly longer too.
The motorbike version and the triangles are just exactly as drafted in the pattern. Sometimes the simple ones are the best!
So this post is also a great opportunity to show of some lovely views. Standing on the roof of the Duomo in Milan (as in the picture above) was a pretty surreal moment.
