Pretty! I think I need to try Ottobre's tops--I'm having good luck with their skirts.

Thank you for getting this review up. You'll definitely have to cut the shoulders shorter. I like the sleeve length on you. Very flattering color.

Sherril, YES...when I saw the photo I groaned! GOSH, it is almost falling off that shoulder! Thanks for your help on these tees too!

I love the color of your tee. After reading your review, I think I will have to go and get myself one of the Ottobre magazines! Very nice job. I agree with Sherril, shrink the shoulders!

Thanks for this thorough review! I look forward to seeing your results with your newly traced smaller pattern.

I just bought the magazine off eBay and am anxious to try this pattern. Great review!

I'm so glad you got the sizing just right. Now you can make tons of these in different fabrics. I hope you can get a pic up soon.

This looks great! Superb fit. I just did the Ottober 2-2006 top in 3/4 sleeve length and now have another TNT tshirt top. I did a v-neck.

Very nice Muffet! I cannot wait to make one of these. I think I would really like to try that sleeve length also.

I'm not really familiar with Ottobre Woman patterns but they sound like something I might need to check out. Your tops are very nice and the fit looks great!

Great result and review. Your top fits great. I love the Ottobre patterns too.

I was looking for a new t-shirt pattern to try out, and with your great success, I'm going to trace this one out for me. Thanks for the picture. You really got the right combination of sizes that works for you. Isn't Ottobre the best?

Thank You for this review - and the neww approach! I have tred the "rose"-model and it did fit well, but it is interesting to learn more about tracing/ fit options!

Oooo, love that blue, and the fit is perfect!

Mary Stiefer said...
The blue is a perfect fit. I guess that this will become one of your TNT patterns you lucky women you. Just imagine this in lots of different colors with different embellishments - perhaps appliques or those self adhesive rhinestones at the neckline - lovely.

Mufffet said...
Thanks everyone! Mary, rhinestones?! WOW. :)) You never know...I do intend to make this over again, and try cutting a turtleneck!

Sherril Miller said...
Cute stitches for that neckline. How terrific are you for not stretching it out with those stitches. I'm going to have to steal this idea.

I love your decorative stitching. I'm with Sherril--I think I'm going to have to steal this idea.

Your top is beautiful! Love the designer stitches too! Great reviews~

Ooooo, that turquoise is one of my FAVORITE colors, and you really look GREAT in it. Your decorative stitching adds just the right touch!

Mufffet said...
Sherril, I used the edge stitching foot with the needle over to the left, that made just the width I needed. Then I used the tip that I think I read in a Debbie Cook message about holding your finger behind the presser foot lightly and that really helps keep things from stretching and getting carried away! :)) I have used that so much since reading it way back.

Michele, what a slide show. So many machines in your home. You said you had several, but I had no idea. I like the tourquise top. You have made so many tops. Some fit better than others, but from what I see, you are getting fit down pretty well. I loved the decorative stitching you did. Very creative and it takes an ordinary tee and makes it extra special.

Nice top!

Aaaaahhh, PERFECTION! :o) You've got yourself the perfect TNT here.
