|Pattern Description: You'll rock this fabulous T-shirt, designed for lightweight fluid or drape-y t-shirting fabrics...think bamboo, modal, rayon or tencel knit blends, or even silk jersey. Pull-over, cap sleeved T-shirt has center front & back seams, a curved hemline and a self fabric scarf tie at the V neckline.|
Fringe the ends of the scarf for a funky look, and add decorative stitches to the center front & back seams to really dial it up a notch... Wear this wardrobe essential over jeans or slouchy pants for a fabulous casual outfit, or try it as a layering piece under a slick suit jacket or a cozy cardigan.
Pattern Sizing: 6-26
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, apart from changes I made.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I thought they were, but it looks like other reviewers have had problems. Just remember the scarf part has raw edges when attaching it to the neck.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It's free! I also love a good knit top.
Fabric Used: Jersey-Lycra bought on clearance awhile ago, so I can't remember exactly.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I cut the front and back on the folds. Also after I hemmed it the first time I cut it shorter and made it a straight hem. I also cut the scarf on the fold.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will sew this again. I will shorten it on the pattern, so I can keep the cool curved hem. I think I will also cut out two scarves and sew them together to hide raw edges.
Conclusion: I love it! It is an easy garment and versatile. I'd like to make a couple more versions as a great summer staple. You can see more pictures on my blog.
