t-shirt 3 in cotton canvas (tea)
T-shirt 3 is my own personal take on an iconic clothing item: the simple t-shirt.
When I first learned to pattern draft and starting dreaming about offering clothing under my brand, I wanted to make a t-shirt in a sturdy canvas. Unfortunately, my doubt got the best of me at that time and I felt like I couldn't offer a shirt in a heavy fabric like canvas, which is most often used for pants or even upholstery. Well, I went back to that original vision with this top and I couldn't be happier with the result. It pairs perfectly with your favorite super high-waisted pants and a winter jacket. Sculptural, sturdy and comfortable.
The color of the fabric is named "tea" since it's pretty close to how I like my earl grey tea to look in the morning after I've added the cream: a very light beige. Sort of like the pages of an old library book.
Also available in hemp organic cotton canvas in the color "cinder" and in linen in the color "foam."
I've designed my "open size" (os) garments to accommodate a range of sizes. Os 2 has 6" more "ease" in the bust and both sizes are the same length. Emma, pictured first, wears os 1. Kaylee, pictured second, wears os 2.
Bust measurement: 24 1/2"
Bust measurement: 27 1/2"
*Please note that because of the handmade nature of my clothes there could be slight variations in these measurements. I consider this my own little act of "wabi sabi" which is the Japanese concept of the beauty in imperfection.
Fabric content: duck cotton canvas
Care instructions: Wash separately in cold water on delicate cycle. Dry on low heat. Remove promptly. Press...or don't.
*this fabric is not something I would consider "sustainable," but I'll be making the switch to hemp organic cotton canvas this fall.
Hand made to order with patience and care. Please allow 3-4 weeks for this item to ship.
