That turned out just gorgeous and will definitely be a great going-out top! Your changes make it special and I really like the sleeves. I need to try that stretch organza!

Thankyou for your review . I saw this in progress on your BLOG and wondered how the organzaz ribbon was used . I live in Melbourne too Where did you get the ribbon??The T shirt is lovely and I am in the process of making a similar one out of strtch lace from Cutting edge fabrics . Thanks again.

I love the fabric choice. Can it still be called a tee when it looks this nice?

Another great one! Really cute t, so feminine! I agree, these Otto t's are the best, now I'll have to try this version too!

You do the most awesome reviews Belinda. Thank you for sharing so much detail in your variations. There's always something of interest in your reviews. Thanks again. :o)

What a great top. That fabric is lovely and I love how you adapted the pattern to it. Cute cute cute!

Great shirt. Very interesting on your hem treatment - looks great. I've not seen ribbon like that before. (Of course, there's a lot of stuff I haven't seen before.) And I agree w/ Cidell - calling this a tee does not come near to describing it.

Beautfiul shirt, very interesting use of pattern changes,fabric and trim. Also, read your blog - about how you altered pattern for gathering which I will using for T patterns. But thank you - also - this info was helpful in my wearable muslin in unstable knit where I stretched out the scoop neck by 1.5 inches - used your gathering technique and now it wearable! So if I ever stretch neckline out again - gathering will become the design opportunity. Thanks!

Belinda your garments and reviews are terrific, and a big help but I wish I had read this one before tracing. I have traced the puffed sleeve t-shirt front and back, and it took me all day, I am hoping you are able to tell me how to alter the sleeve (7.) pattern to remove the gathers? so the sleeve is plain, thanking you . barbara j

Sew4Fun said...
Barbara, the easiest way is to trace one of the sleeves from the other patterns in the magazine. The sleeves are all inchangeable with the various tees. #3 has a short sleeve without gathers. HTH

Barbara J said...
Thanks for your reply Belinda, will trace the sleeve from 2/2007-3 to fit into 2/2007-4 armhole. The only other question, sorry, is although the backs of view 3. and 4. are the same number (2), The fronts are not the same numbers, they are (1) and (6), does this matter at all? Thanking you again. barbara j

Sew4Fun said...
Barbara - no it doesn't matter. The sleeve still fits.

The more I read, the more I realise I have to have this magazine. The styles are simple and stylish and the resulting garments you ladies make are fab.
