Art Gallery Jersey Paparounes Crimson Tee Shirt

Posted on

Last year, I treated myself to a metre of gorgeous Art Gallery jersey fabric from Minerva and made it up into a simple boat neck tee shirt towards the end of the summer.  I ended up putting it away and forgetting about it so it was a nice surprise when I came across it in my drawer.

I based the tee on The Grainline Lark Tee  (available as a PDF pattern) and used an old t shirt as a guide for grown on sleeves, as there wasn’t quite enough fabric for set in sleeves.

I love the simplicity of the style with the colourful fabric.  As always, this Art Gallery fabric is great to work with, lovely and soft with a good amount of stretch.  It washes & wears well and retains it's shape.  It is so versatile & I've made dresses, underwear and tee shirts using Art Gallery Jersey.  This fabric is £24.99 per metre and is 145cm/57.1" wide, with 95% Pima cotton/5% Spandex composition.

My first dress made with Art Gallery Jersey was McCall's 6884 a Faux wrap dress.
