Favorite Shirt

I have always been afraid of knit fabric, I'm not sure why. Maybe because the one time I tried to make something with knit it turned into a disaster. But recently I decided to take courage and plunge into my knit fabric stash, the worse thing that could happen is it wouldn't work out, and the alternative is that the fabric would never get I did it. 

This is my favorite black's been my favorite for years, it's so comfy and the yoke top adds just the right amount of drape to keep the shirt from fitting too tight but still not be baggy, and the sleeves have just the tiniest bit of puff to them. So I decided to try to replicate it, following a few different tutorials. (This one was really helpful)
 And the result...I now have a new favorite shirt...and I've fallen in love with knit fabric!
Now I can't wait to use up my stash and make some more shirts! I also never knew how nicely knit's seriously amazing. I am now a fan. :)
How do you feel about knit fabric?

Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
