Thanks for mentioning that it is free on their website. I was going to buy this at the shop!

Christina, this is just a great looking shirt on you. Love the stripes, love the fit. Free pattern, $3/yard fabric. This is the best! Lovely, Lily

Thank you I wondered what the downloaded patterns might be like. Thanks to you I'll be brave enough to 'have a go' :)

Leslie - For this shirt, I set my sleeves in flat (not in the round) which is how I usually deal with knits, stretching the armscye to fit the sleeve cap. I didn't have any sleeve issues for this shirt. Maybe you'll have better luck with a stretchier fabric?

Very nice top. I am working with this pattern too. I have made it once, but my knit was not stretchy enough and its skin tight. I am going to use that for extra layering this winter...which is almost upon us in NZ. I found too much ease in the sleeve cap and have strange "peaks" where I don't want them. Did you have any sleeve fitting issues?

Great basic tee. This has been in Burda's Start 2 lineup for quite a while. The facings were always "odd". I like your treatment much better.

Great basic - I can see making this over and over. I agree with your neck treatment. Facings on knits? I don't think so. Love the stripes!

Cute and comfortable. Great top.

love it! the fit is great, I see lots of sleeve/neckline variations in your future. :-)

I don't get the facings in knits either, but whatever. We don't have to follow directions :-). This one certainly looks like it fits you nicely, isn't it nice to have a dependable comfy pattern? Comfy's everything..

The t shirt is so very nice. I plan to do this one doing the neck with binding also. What a great looking t shirt.

squirrellypoo - Sure, give me some time and I'll post some better pics of the neckline.

That stripe is uber cute on you!

Very nice. Can you explain the neckline finish for those of us without that Threads issue by any chance (or is it in here as a Tip already)? I downloaded Lydia, but only as a base for the Leg of Mutton shirt!
