Butterick 3344 - Long-Sleeved T-Shirt

Thanks for all the comments about my sweater!  I'm still so happy about it.  I usually like everything to be put away as much as possible, but I've intentionally left it out so I can admire it.  :)

But, in order to wear it, I needed a lightweight long-sleeved shirt to keep me from being too itchy in the wool.  So even though I have other things in the works, that jumped to the front of the line.  I pretty much made it while the kiddos watched Sesame Street this morning.

Not terribly exciting, but it fulfills its purpose beautifully.  I'm not sure exactly what the fabric is.  It's super stretchy like a rib knit, but looks more like interlock.  And I'm not sure about the fiber content, either.  It feels like some sort of blend - very soft and smooth.  The color is difficult to discern from the photo, but it's a heathered oatmeal sort of color (somewhere between off-white and tan).  I'm pretty sure I bought it at Metro Textile in NYC.

I used Butterick 3344, now OOP.  This one is the same as the green one I made a few weeks ago, except for the sleeve length.  I like this pattern more each time I use it.

Okay, now back to the other things I was working on...

  1. I like these types of tops. It sounds very comfortable and is a perfect companion to your owl sweater.
