I completed these in early December, and they are getting a ton of wear already. I think I've perfected my perfect long-sleeved T-shirt pattern!

Sewing Notes- I have my own basic long-sleeved shirt pattern that I've tweaked over time. It has just enough shaping to fit and still be super-comfy. I did my usual neckline binding (I never just fold over and sew). Usually, I use a twin needle for the hems, but this time, I simply used a zig-zag stitch, and it works great. I think the zig-zag stitch looks a little more casual than a twin needle, but these are casual shirts.
Quite honestly, when the navy/gray flowered fabric arrived, I thought it was boring. And I fully expected this top to end up as a pajama shirt. But now that it's made up into a top, I quite like it. It will definitely be a "regular" top, not just jammies. Hooray for that!
