I know one my biggest — if not THE biggest — of my woes is our T shirts being soft but NOT VINTAGE SOFT. 

Oh, the humanity. 


Because my Alabama Chanin and AC-inspired Ts are becoming coveted by my family I picked up some plain white 100% cotton Ts at Michael’s last month during a quick trip to my original side of the pond. (I’ve yet to make a T from scratch but it’s on the list). 

The shirts have been washed and are perfectly serviceable for my needs, but why not try this Pin?


I’m not sure how small the shirt would be to be brined in the recipe of one quart water to a half cup of salt so doubled the mixture for one XL T. 

Now we wait three days. 

An occasional stir seems appropriate.
