Week of Tees: Classic Baseball Shirt

It’s day five of my Week of Tees which makes me a little proud. I started this mini-series as a small challenge for myself. Sewing up five shirts wasn’t hard, but setting a schedule, photographing and then writing about them five days in a row, kind of was. Why is it so hard to take good photos of oneself?

As a result, I now have six new shirts, five of which will make it to the blog (number six is just a plain black tee). So this week, I will blog about a different shirt every day. I worked with two patterns as […]
