Pattern Description: T-shirt ,view B.C.

Pattern Sizing:
34-46. I made a size 40.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
I skipped a whole section about the collar, so had to wing it. The directions are easy to follow, if you actually do read all of it.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Loved the Mandarin collar; wished it turned out a little neater, but I think my interfacing didn't work well.

Fabric Used:
Poly-Spandex knit, medium weight.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Didn't do a narrow shoulder adjustment, which I regretted. Went back and just folded up and serged around the armscye, and it wound up being wearable. Spandex is very forgiving.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I'd like to try it without the collar. Definitely would recommend this pattern.

Conclusion:
A wearable muslin I'd like to perfect.
