|Pattern Description: A woven t-shirt with capped sleeves and scoop neck. Fitted at the shoulders, this top falls into a loose shape below the bust|
Pattern Sizing: The PDF downloadable pattern was 19 pages to be taped together. Not difficult at all. Sized from 0 to 18. I wear a RTW 12, but per the sizing chart from GS, I cut a 14. I could have cut a 12 as I had to take the side seams in about 1/2"
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes. The first one I made, First
was straight from the pattern, the second,
I did some blocking and a false button placket down the back Button Placket
( idea from Sally at the Quirky Peach Sally's
Were the instructions easy to follow? I glanced at them, but did not use them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?The simple line and style.
Fabric Used:Crepe de Chine for the first, and cotton and lace for the second.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did French seams where I could. I did not use the bias trim pattern piece for the neckline. I found it too narrow. I cut a 1.5" wide bias strip and ironed in half lengthwise wrong sides together. I then sewed it to the outside neck edges, raw edges together, with 1/4" seam, turned in and under-stitched on bias, trimmed to 1/8" then turned bias to inside and top stitched in place.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I love this pattern. Sleeves were a breeze to set in (which I did flat) and I just love the way the shirt drapes. The curved hem of the sleeves is flattering as well.
Conclusion: If you like the comfort of a T shirt, but want something a little less casual, you will love this pattern.
