The June project for Bluebird Fabrics #SewMyStyle is the Megan Nielsen – Briar Tshirt. This is a versatile tee with options for short or long sleeves and hems.  It pairs nicely with the  Virginia leggings, which was the March project.

I chose medium size with no modifications, using a cotton lycra from my fabric collection.  There wasn’t quite enough for sleeves, and used black bamboo jersey for the sleeves and pocket.

Overall I’m happy with this shirt and have plans to make more. I have a hemp jersey that with a modification to flare it up a size at the hips would achieve the flowing silhouette shown on the pattern.  The medium doesn’t sit right in the back given the tight hip issue.  I could fix but given I don’t see it while wearing, it doesn’t bother me enough to invest the time.

The back would sit better with more hip room

Alternatively, I could use the shorter version, but I really like the scoop for  back coverage!

The Briar Tshirt has quickly become my favorite for weekends with leggings, given that summer is slow to arrive this year.
