Briar T … My Favorite

I started reading Megan Nielsen’s Design Diary years ago…back when she lived in Iowa.  It was the first sewing blog I followed and also the first fashion/style blog I followed.

I was excited when she launched her line of sewing patterns but, being busy with life and young kids, didn’t buy one of her sewing patterns until last year.  I am so glad I finally did!

The Briar T is my favorite T-shirt ever!

First Briar. Size medium
Second Briar. Size Large


I really liked my precious two Briar T’s but when I saw this tutorial for changing the scoop neck into a v-neck, I knew I needed to try it:

Third time’s a charm! Size small.

This is my perfect t-shirt!  Back, v-neck, fitted but not too tight.  I wear it pretty much as soon as it is washed.  I think I’ll need to make several more before spring…

I’m never going to buy another t-shirt again…nothing can compare!

I also want to try hacking this pattern into a dress…my vision is to use the cropped version for a striped knit and add a solid colored skirt.

Have you found a favorite t-shirt pattern?
