|Pattern Description: |
'Shirt with small cap sleeves and princess seams in front and back. Tip: sew the hem with twin needle.'
Downloadable from here.
Burda size 34-44. I made size 38.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, apart from a couple of changes I made.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't use the instructions. I read them and decided to do it my own way.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is a flattering pattern that lends itself to colour blocking with the side panels and sleeves.
A soft, wrinkly knit fabric in stripes and plain. I think there was viscose in there.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lowered the neckline and added cuffs to the sleeves. I also made the t-shirt slightly wider below the waist (by sewing close to the edge of the seam allowances) so it was looser fitting around the tummy. I made the neckband and cuffs by folding strips of fabric in half lengthways, stretching them to fit the neck or sleeve and stitching them on. Simple and effective.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes. This is a great pattern and so easy.
I am very happy with this t-shirt. It is comfortable to wear and has added interest with the princess seams and panels of fabric. It was very quick and easy to make and I do think I'll make more in different colours.
