Pattern Description:
Cropped sleeve T-shirt or tunic with patch pocket and shaped hem

Pattern Sizing:
Euro 34-52, I made a 36.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Simple, basic T.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I think the fit is very nice and I'm happy to have the option of the shaped hem. I guess because of the shaped hem, Ottobre added length adjustment lines to this pattern and several others from the issue. I like the neckline, it's a little wider than a standard T which adds interest but it's not low which I prefer in winter.

Fabric Used:
Light weight red cotton jersey with some give but no lycra.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I shortened the body some but left the sleeves alone, which brings them closer to full length on me.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I've made the T twice, I'm not as interested in the tunic length, but may try it.

This is a simple pattern but the fit worked really well for me, I'll be making more.

Worn with previously reviewed Jamie Jeans.
