Thanks for the review. I have this pattern in my pattern stash and just about ready to try it out. I'm thinking of making the v-neck with 3/4 sleeves in a black knit. Glad to hear this is not a form fitting t-shirt. BTW, you're picture is not showing up.

Nice job and thanks for the reminder that all t shirts don't have to be close fitting. I've made this top and also appreciate the looser fit.

Thanks ladies. I might wear the T away from the house if I have a plain shirt over the top of it! Sherril--I can't believe all the variations you have come up with. I haven't strayed to far from instructions yet as far as changing necklines etc; maybe someday.....

Great looking tee -- I'll bet you don't confine it to just around the house! It's a great spring/summer print & I really like the fit you've achieved. (KS 2900 is a favorite of mine, too. I've made several with short sleeves & am about to make a few more. Thanks for the review!

That's a very pretty spring fabric. I'm glad you love the pattern too. I've got this one on my cutting table right now. It's my very favorite t-shirt pattern and I use it as my "gold" standard for which I measure all other patterns and their fit by.

Nice work and I really like the print on you. I bought this pattern a year or so ago when just learning to sew with knits and was very pleased with it as well.

I really like the print on you! My figure seems very similar to yours and this is my favorite t-shirt pattern too! I have even used other stretch fabrics (minkee and doubleknit) with this pattern, and it works up so nice! Thanks to Sherrill's reviews for inspiring me to try this and I am going to shamelessly try copying some of her adaptations too!

Good job, dwife. Your top is very smooth-fitting without being form-fitting. I really like it.

Thanks everyone. I have finished 2 more since I did that review this afternoon. I had them made except for the hems and had put them down. I have 2 more cut out to make too. Mary T--I say go for it, this is a great T. For us more mature figures, is that a nice way to put that, I just love the way this fits. I will never be able to wear those tiny T-shirts so I am glad I finally tried this one.

Jolene - this looks very nice. I like the little looser fit, too!

Love the t-shirt - great fit!

This is a good fit, and the print looks good on you. I am so tempted to try this pattern.

Great looking top -- this really IS a great pattern, isn't it? And you did a very nice job.

I also like tees that aren't completely form fitting, and this looks great. I really like the neckline....very flattering. Nice job!

It looks great, thanks for the review.

It looks great, Jolene! Now you can be like Sherril and modify it to your heart's content without worrying about the fit. :-)
