Great review -- I thought the first one was pretty good, but your final one is "made for you." Perfect!

Thanks for the in depth review on this pattern. I love the Ottobre tops and have made several. I need to make them a bit more full just for wearing eases now. Sigh. :) This is a pattern you can make over and over for years and not be out of "style!"

Amazing review! Thanks for the Debbie Cook link as well. I know I'll be using that a lot! The difference in fit between the two purple tops is really great, thanks for showing that.

Nice tees and good review. It was good to see how you improved the fit with each version.

Not mind numbing at all! I appreciate your taking time to explain what you did. Now you have a nice t-shirt wardrobe. Next time you see some yardage you like, it'll probably take 15 minutes to run up a shirt. Thanks.

Thanks! I really enjoy making garment after garment by the same pattern and watching each one get better--well that usually happens.

Thank you for writing all of your alterations out. I read it ALL and now I'm going to re-visit this tee pattern and see if I can get it to work for me!

Absolutely great tees. I love that you have two identicals; I do that all the time, too. Tracing is my most hated task; can't believe you had to trace twice - but it was certainly worth it, as you now have a bevy of well fitting, pretty tops. Lovely, Lily

I'm jealous of all your nice new shirts! They all look terrific and the fit you achieved with all your tweaks really paid off.

Good job on the alterations. I think rotating a dart out of the armhole did wonders for the fit.
