Jackson Tee Treats

What a treat this pattern is.


The Jackson Tee and Pullover from Helen's Closet is a real basic but the fit is fantastic. Having made most t-shirts under the sun, I was keen to try out another variant to see how it compared. 

I have already made the pullover version here but the tee version gives a very different look altogether.

The Jackson tee is a 'classic unisex fit with a slightly dropped shoulder and crew neck'. 

Love a dropped shoulder, and the looser fit is also a preference of mine. 

The size is a 16/18 and fit great! It's loose enough to skim the body well and give that roomy effect, but not so voluminous that you can't tuck it into skirts and trousers.

The longer length of the tee option (and you can also used the cropped variant) is also the perfect leggings cover-up and therefore meets my criteria on that point!

I went for a classic stripe and a not so classic stripe - fabrics from Flamingo Fabrics and Jelly Fabrics for jersey. 

The pattern is easy to cut, sew and really takes minimal time to put together as the pieces fit just right. I'm pleased to report these t-shirts have been worn multiple times, a sign of a good sew!
