This post is about the top I was wearing with my Easy Pants in my previous post. It’s the Wardrobe Builder T-shirt.
This pattern is so awesome! It has tons of options 5 necklines, 6 sleeve lengths and 3 body lengths and of course you can mix and match it however you want. It also sews up super fast. I have photos of 4 Wardrobe Builders to show you here. This cute floral thing is the scoop neck with elbow length sleeves.
The pink one from last post is the boatneck also with elbow length sleeves.
Of course I had to make one in my go to colour – blue. This one is also the boatneck but with 3/4 sleeves.
Then I went totally out of my usual colour palette and made one in yellow with v-neck and long sleeves. I had my doubt about the colour but I really love it and I think this is actually the one I have worn the most lately. All my new Wardrobe Builders are made in viscose jersey. All fabric except the pink one is from Stoffdronning, I don’t remember where I got that one from. This pattern really is a wardrobe builder!

But hey, you can’t have it all on a silver plate now can you?!
