Are oversized shirts in style right now?

Oh yes! They definitely are. Large chunky or drapey tops are very fashionable. Tuck them in or leave them out. Band them. Make them long or make them short.

It’s all in!

My Oversized Tee Sew

I’m a bit late on posting this sew as it’s been a few months since a made it, oops! Life got busy. But, interestingly enough, I just realized I’m wearing the exact shirt you see in my pictures. It still looks great and I wear it often!

This is my “pretending I’m a model” pose 😉.

The instructions for the Oversized Tee states to use 50% 4-way stretch fabric. I used a polyester rib knit I ordered from Knitpop Fabrics a while back. I really like Knitpop Fabric Shop because they have great sales and I always get what I expected when I receive the fabric order!

I wanted to make sure the fabric I used had enough drape so that it still looked flattering even though it’s a wider fit. I think I achieved that with this polyester rib knit fabric choice!

Pattern Options I Chose

Out of all the options listed above for the Oversized Tee Pattern, I chose:

  • Banded Crew Neck
  • Long Drop Sleeve, Cuffed
  • Hemmed Shirt Length
  • No Pocket

My Thoughts

I love it! It’s a super cute PDF sewing pattern and I love how my make turned out. I wear this shirt often and always feel stylish and on trend wearing it!

Next time I make this sewing pattern, I’d like to make the cropped version and do a neckband hack for a different look. I’ve noticed that it’s popular to have a thicker neckband these days with the style trends, so I want to thicken up the neckband.

This will change the width needed for the neckband too (by width I mean across the stretch of the band, so it would be the longer side of the band piece). The band will need to be shorter across the width of the fabric so it doesn’t stick up and out after being sewn in! Stay tuned for that pattern hack in the future!
