Closet Case Patterns’ Ebony Tee – Pattern Review

A pattern review of the Closet Case Patterns Ebony Tee

As a part of the Ease into Motherhood sewing series, I wrote about how sewing changed after my second child. and tried out the Closet Case Patterns Ebony T-shirt!

The last time I sewed something after my second kid, it was a huge flop after I actually edited the photos and looked at them; fabric choices and fit was way off. I vowed to wait until she’d weaned, and then got caught up in other projects. Now I finally feel like I’m more or less at a new normal and ready to make things for myself again!
