Pattern Description: From the pattern envelope, Fitted tee with unique seam detail above the bust. Short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve or sleeveless option and shirt tail hem.

Pattern Sizing:XS to XXXL

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?They probably are however, I enrolled in the PR class Fit to a Tee and used the instructional videos instead of reading/following the pattern instructions.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?The above bust seaming is perfect for my narrow shoulders and also, I think for a much better fit, too.

Fabric Used:Some knit I purchased from JoAnn's and a knit that was lurking in my my stash.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:For the first tee - I sergered a medium but relaxed the fit at the waist - in other words, I widen the waist area since that is where I am the biggest circumference wise. I also lengthen the sleeves. For the second tee - I made it a straight hem rather than a shirt tail hem and I again I widen the waist area a.k.a relaxed the fit even more.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, I would sew/serge it again although I haven't done so yet and I would recommend it to others.

I completed the PR class Fit to Tee (I did post a review about the class, which would be in the Class Review section here on PR if interested) and I since the class is structured around this pattern I purchased the pattern and am glad I did. Not only was it a great class but I really do like this pattern. For more, seemy blog.

I like the color blocking you did with one top. I should take this class. I have the pattern and should give it a try as I really like the look of this top.

Nice job. This is really a great looking tshirt pattern. I hadn't heard of this pattern company before. I am adding this pattern to my wish list. Thanks for the review.

Very nice results, especially the color block here. Looks like you have a new TNT! I agree, to get a TNT it takes me 3 tries and any new knit, it's fit as I go. I always make things too long and trim back. Can never predict best proportions especially with color blocking. Enjoyed your blog post. Thanks.
