Wanderlust Tee


There's nothing more that has gotten me so excited about sewing than knowing I can actually wear the clothes that I've made.  When I saw this video tutorial on CreativeBug.com for the Wanderlust Tee I just knew it would fit great into my daily wardrobe.  Plus this was a great opportunity to practice sewing more with knits and a serger, just like I did with the muscle tank.  I love this t-shirt so much that I made three of them! Two of the tees are a solid color and cropped while the third one is striped and I made this one a little longer too.

The gray tee was my first attempt at the shirt.  I found this knit fabric at Joann's.  It's a heather gray with tiny dots of gold glitter.  This will probably be the last time I work with glittery fabric as it gets glitter everywhere whenever I wear it.  Anyway I paired this tee with faux leather leggings and leopard sneaks for a casual/edgy look.

Can you see some sparkle?
The next tee I made was with a mustard yellow double knit fabric.  I've been seeing this color a lot on fashion blogs so I had to give it a try.  Plus I love yellow and bright colors go well with my skin tone.  I paired the tee with a leopard print skirt that I picked up at the thrift store for $6.  Cute for a date night or a night out with friends.

And finally I decided to do a striped tee because it's classic.  Plus here was my chance to practice lining up stripes for a sewing project.  It wasn't too bad, just lots of double and triple checking.  And on the Wanderlust Tee video tutorial, the instructor gave some great tips for this.  Here I paired the tee with distressed jeans and brown booties.  I love this casual "momiform" look.
