    I have only tried the Union St Tee, but I love it! It is such a great pattern with a great fit. I have adapted it for maternity and made it into dresses. I have never tried the v neck though, but I definitely need to because I love a good v neck.

      The Union St Tee is definitely the best basic one with the most variety in how to make it, so it’s a good pattern to have! I really want to make a v neck t-shirt dress, but I really should practice on a shirt first. I love a good v neck too!

    I have the Union pattern and am anxious to try it out. I agree that fabric choice can make or break the outcome of garments. I am new to buying fabric on line – the independent fabric store in my town closed and I’m left with the chain stores that frankly don’t carry quality fabrics. Any suggestions for sites or ideas for on line fabric purchases?
    I enjoy reading your blog and am inspired by your creations. Thanks

      Hi Robina! I have always gotten good things from Style Maker Fabrics. Other stores I haven’t purchased from yet but are very popular in the sewing community are Harts Fabric, LA Finch Fabric, Blackbird Fabrics, and Imagine Gnats. There was a conversation on Instagram that I read and it was that stores don’t sell cotton/poly that most RTW shirts are made of. But Imagine Gnats and Fabric Dot Com both have a fabric called ‘Dana knit’ and it’s a cotton/modal blend that is really similar. I have yet to try some, but I really want to soon! I hope this helps. 🙂

    What is the stripe fabric you’re wearing in the top photo? I have never been able to find the perfect black and white striped tee so I want to make my own! And that fabric is exactly what I need!

      Hi Jael! I got my fabric at an overstock fabric store in San Francisco (called Fabrix), but that was about a year ago. Sometimes I see fabric stores carry this fabric. There are a couple on Fabric.com if you look through their ribbed knit section. Mine is a 4×2 ribbed knit and the stripes are 1/4″ wide. I think the white stripes are technically ivory or cream colored because they aren’t completely white. I hope that helps! 🙂
