Pattern Description:
Scoop-neck, boxy top with rolled-band cap sleeves.
Pattern Sizing:
XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, very clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It goes together quickly and nicely.
Fabric Used:
A blended double-layer, shredded-look knit--a remnant from my stash.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not do the folded cuffs as described in the pattern. I made a single layer cuff that folds back to show the reverse side of the knit. I also used a raw-edge single layer on the neck band and raw-edge bottom hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I'm going to sew it again. I want to try it in a sweater knit as shown on the website, and I want to try adding long sleeves for another look. I will probably also make it with a high-low hem.
Conclusion:
Great, versatile little boxy t-shirt. I'm really wanting more loose-fitting tees now, and this is a great pattern to use for them.

Good looking. I like the little reverse side of the knit showing - almost like a binding.
