|Pattern Description: |
Like the name implies, a sloppy fit t-shirt but with a fitted raglan sleeve with wide cuff. The perfect tee for slouching around in, or for tucking in to your high waisted jeans or skirts for a feminine look.
XXS-L Mine is a combo of several sizes.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Pretty much other than the changes I made.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Super simple to sew so I merely glanced at the instructions but they had clear diagrams.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I think the style is very trendy and works well with busy knits. The pattern is a little more than I'd like to spend on a simple pattern.
This is deep stash so I no longer remember the fiber content. It is a burn out knit, the taupe areas are semi transparent. I bought this from Tessuti about 4 years ago.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1. I originally with a size large but though the top was not very flattering on me with that much ease. Resized all the neckline and raglan seams to a small, kept the hem at the large size and the sleeve hems at medium size.
2. I lengthened the sleeved to a 3/4 one. Since the sleeve hem was already snug I slashed and spread the pattern to add 5" of length.
3. I took 2" off the length of the shirt and added a fold over Renfrew like hem band that was 2.5" finished.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This is my second version, the first can be seen in this blog post.
Cute top that will be great for layering.
