Founded by Sonya Philip and based on a strong mission, 100 Acts of Sewing is based on her very thoughtful and artisanal approach to fashion and making. I encourage you to read more about it here, but my favourite insight in her beautiful statement of purpose is this, "Making clothing is a conscious choice; it is an investment of time over convenience. The creation of a functional garment, engenders self-sufficiency and happiness. Since it is perilous to compare what one makes to the immutable perfection of store-bought, in sewing for oneself it is the work itself, and the recognition of flaws and gradual achievement of better skills as part of that work, that produces satisfaction."

Shirt No. 2 is a simple knit top. This shirt can be made with short or long sleeves. The scoop neck is finished with a fabric band.

An instruction booklet walks you through the steps, from tracing and cutting the pattern pieces, to making and sewing with knit fabric. The pattern is printed on bond paper, with eight nested sizes.
