I've been always intimidated by plaids and stripes ever since I found that neat plaids and narrow constant stripes in colors of deep contrast, which were very popular and lovely on many people, were quite difficult because they were too crisp and too cute on me. I've looked for horizontal-striped things with irregular pitch in vague and subtle combination of colors, either in T shirt or jersey fabric, for very long time, but I was never successful in the search.
So, I explain what I did.
I made the material for my own striped T.
sorry it's already remnant
I chose two jerseys in subtly different colors and textures from my stash, and combined them into one piece of fabric with my serger. As you see, now I have my version of T with stripes of my liking. I must say I really, really love it!!
The pearly ecru fabric I used for the body is very common cotton jersey with slight polyester blended. The fabric for stripes is pale blue-gray 2way cotton/polyester jersey which is thin, soft, glittery and very stretchy, like the materials for leggings.
I used pattern 706, which is a pattern for a common boat neck T, from anneecotton*.
The body was lengthened quite a lot as well as the sleeves, but nothing has been changed other than that.
It was just a casual experiment, but I am so happy with how it turned out.
I'd repeat this experiment when I feel like another striped T!!
My favorite trees are in blossom, now.
