Pattern Spotlight: Rivington T-shirt
I first fell in love with those $100 luxe t-shirts when I lived in LA…the kind that are super soft and fit loose but tight in all the right places…and last for years. Now that I live away from a major city, I’ve found the only place to buy t-shirts is fast fashion. The kind that make you wonder when you see them for 6 bucks (or less) and have that “fall apart after a few washes” look.
So, like I do, I made my own! And I feel like the Rivington has been around forever because it’s become my everyday uniform for the last month. Jeans and a tshirt. Soft in a cotton viscose, the fit I love…and made with my own hands to last.
Since the launch of the pattern, I have been amazed by your makes and just how different this easy pattern can look! So, I figured I would gather up a few of my favorites to get your creative juices flowing! Check out some of your makes below!
