I really can’t wait for the first boxes of Briars to arrive in a week! I’ve been living in all the samples. Not exaggerating when i say this is my go to top style right now. Actually this one in particular is a favourite – it’s the standard tshirt as detailed in the pattern – complete with patch pocket. One of the reasons i love it over a standard T is the longer back hem – it’s nice to have the freedom to bend over without worrying, and it never comes untucked from skirts.
Also, i kind of wish you could feel this fabric, because it’s so ridiculously good. I finally made a trip to Potters Fabrics in Perth – and goodness me am i in love. They don’t have a massive selection, but everything is beautiful quality. I would have walked out with bolts if budget had allowed. But i did walk out with this amazing grey knit – so soft and drapey, There’s such a tiny amount left and i’m desperately brainstorming ways to use it… maybe there’ll be enough for something for Buddy or Bunny. It’s too good to waste. I know it’s been said that the perfect white tshirt is a wardrobe staple – the top that will go with everything. But for me, i gravitate more towards grey. I feel like it’s less stark, but as a neutral it still goes with everything. (you’d be shocked how much i wear this little grey tank)
So what about you? Are you in the “basic white tee” club, or do you opt for a different take on basics?
