La Brea Tee
Named after La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles. It was in a vintage shop there that I found myself drawn to a rack of 80s throwback knit t-shirts with grown-on sleeves and bound necklines. I remembered wearing this style as a child and I couldn't wait to get back home and sew one up for myself.
Although LA BREA will fit your "basic tee" needs, it's got plenty of interesting details! LA BREA was drafted for both woven and knit fabrics, each resulting in a completely different look. Raw edges are neatly worked away with French seams and bias facing. Not familiar with these yet? No worries - the instructions guide you smoothly through the steps. Perhaps most exciting, though, is that this pattern comes in 18 different layered and nested sizes, each with a B-cup and D-cup options. Additional tips on fitting and adjustments are included in the pattern instructions, meaning that you can easily create a LA BREA to fit YOUR beautiful body and personal style.

Reminiscent of iconic classics, the halfmoon 101 JEANS are lower-rise, straight leg and designed for a non-stretch (selvedge) denim. Designed to be snug around the hips and upper thighs, the halfmoon 101’s will curve nicely around your waist and hug your hips before straightening out from just above the knee toward the ankle. There is an option for zipper or concealed button fly and the instructions will walk you through flat-felling the seams to create a simple look with a truly individual fit.
