fitted t-shirt top with jewel neckline and sleeve options (cap sleeve, short sleeve, etc).
XS, S, M, L, XL. i made an XS/S.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
thorough, wonderful instructions with plenty of detail for the signature alabama chanin hand embellishments. the book also contains instruction on techniques including embroidery, applique, quilting and stenciling.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
i love how easy the pattern is to use and to adapt. it's a basic that can be made over and over in infinite variations.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
i adapted the pattern to create a design inspired by the chanel 2013 collection - a cropped sweater done all over in the signature chanel camelia and draped with strings of pearl beads
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
this is my go-to basic t-shirt pattern. i use it for almost everything that starts as a basic knit bodice.
