Review for the other four versions (View A) of the "TNT Tee" contest entry
Pattern Description: Misses' very close fitting pullover tops have short hemmed dolman sleeves. View A, B and D have necklines finished with narrow hems. View A has a round neckline, View B has a scoop neckline, View C has a cowl collar. View D has a bias cut front and back with centre front and centre back seams and a boat neckline.
Designed for stretch knits only with 25% stretch across the grain. We suggest interlock, stretch velvet, textured knits, stretch lace or matte jersey.
I made View C
Pattern Sizing: : XS-S-M-L-XL
I made an S, adding an extra 5cm to the circumference at the bottom to allow for my pear shape.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did, although the different fabrics behaved quite differently in the cowl collar particularly
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very simple. I serged the sleeve hems rather than just overcast and tacked the hem down on the jersey one rather than just pin. It gave me more control when twin needling the hems
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked that it was very quick and simple to make and surprisingly well fitting.
A: Missoni knit from the Silk Shop in Sydney, a piece I've had for 15 years
B: Emerald viscose/rayon jersey from the Fabric Store in Brisbane
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I only shortened it by 2.5cm
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I've already made seven from this pattern. I would definitely recommend it
Conclusion: Quick and easy, suitable for beginners unless using a slinky, slippery knit
