Basics Sewing: Sweatpants and White V-neck Tee

I made this basics set a few months ago at the beginning of our stay at home orders. I was working form my stash (fabric + patterns) so I thought I’d try out this men’s sweat pant and my fav basic tee pattern. I did have a few issues with the pant- mainly because it …
