Version 2 is made using the cowl neck version and a black rayon jersey. I omitted the petite adjustment, making this the original pattern length. Another quick and easy project!
Version 2 Blogged
_______________________________________________________ Pattern Description: Fitted top with sleeve and neckline variations. I made the short sleeved v-neck.
Pattern Sizing: This is available in sizes 0-16. I made a 12.
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? So easy!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love me a basic tee. I wear them all the time either by themselves or layered with other pieces. The v-neck is one of my two favorite necklines (my other favorite is the boatneck) and this one was very easy to sew. I love the neck, sleeve, and hem binding.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I shortened the length by about 1 inch. The one change I may do if I make another short sleeved version is to add a smidge to the sleeve band. My upper arms are a bit on the plump side and the band is a bit tight. It's totally wearable as is but if you have larger upper arms like mine, you might want to add some length to the band.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will sew this one again! I would recommend it to others.
Conclusion: Great basic tee that will get tons of wear!
