|Pattern Description: a lovely t-shirt pattern with multiple options. I love that they include sizes from a girls 2 all the way up to a woman's 22 (US sizes). This pattern has a choice of 4 different sleeve lengths: cap, short, 3/4s, and long. It also has 4 different necklines: Jewel neck, mock turtleneck, v-neck, and overlapped v-neck with buttons. That is a lot of options! |
Pattern Sizing: girls 2 all the way up to woman's 22; At first I went up one size for K from an L that she measured at to a M; It didn't fit so well. Today I tried again, this time bumping up four sizes from her measurements to an O which is a size 11US or 150cm. She normally wears an 8/10 on top in RTW - so 11 isn't that far off.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions are wonderful on these patterns - they are very precise and include pictures for each step.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the massive size range and the many different options.
Fabric Used: I used 1/2 yard of 58" wide Jersey Knit "Floral Fuchsia/Blue/White; Purchased for $2.97 way back on 06/01/2012 from fabric.com ($5.94/yard);
65% poly, 35% rayon blend. It is very soft and lightweight. 30% stretch.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I sewed one shoulder first, added a strip of twill tape it to stabilize and then sewed on the binding. Then I sewed and twilled the other shoulder. I attached the sleeves before sewing the sides. On the cap sleeves I also hemmed them before attaching them. I had the help of WonderTape on the hems and used my walking foot for them as well. I used the serger for most of the sewing together but I did reinforce the armpits with a small zigzag after serger. I also sewed a tiny 1/8 seam to attach sleeve caps before serging to ensure a clean sew.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, and Yes! It is versatile and has tons of options. These are comfy tees that look RTW. Now that I have the fit down I will be making K many of these for school wear. I also plan on making some for myself.
