|Pattern Description: |
Relaxed, asymmetric tee with a knot detail
Straight-cut style with plenty of ease
EUR 32 to 46 (US 0 – 14, UK 4 – 18)
I pretty much measure a 40, but sewed a 38 as I did not want as much ease and I was checking for shoulder fit. I would say that it runs true to size.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Mostly, but I did not tie at my waist, and I drafted long sleeves. The pattern comes with a very short sleeve.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved that it was simple, casual, and classy.
You can print this on US standard paper - this is a change from their first collection.
I have read a lot of complaints about having to print and then trace these patterns, but I think it's a plus and it's something I do most times anyways in order to preserve my original. You print 2 sizes at a time, and most are on 12 sheets of paper, i.e. I printed out 36-38. I also like that the 3/8" SA is marked - I can use that to grade up or down as I need to without printing off an additional range.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
none - this was my test muslin. Patterns are drafted for a height of 5'8". For reference, I am 5'4" and did not make any length adjustment.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes! I can see this and versions of as my go to tee shirt this summer. The front is in 2 pieces - color blocking!
I have several of the Named patterns, but this was the first one I've sewn. I just love their style and they have done a good job of updating their pattern instructions as well as including all size ranges.
I wish I could have all the patterns in their new collection!
