|I figured out why I stopped wearing pants and jeans. I ran out of cute tops to wear them with! With this and the recent Olivia Tee, I am covered! |
Pattern Description: Free T-shirt from Deer and Doe. It is slightly swingy, just enough to give you some room and yet its fitted at the bust and waist. Short, long and 3/4 sleeves included in the pattern. Cute design detail - elbow patch.
Pattern Sizing: Pattern is sized from 34 - 48. Based on my bust size I made size 36 and its perfect for me.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes! And I was inspired to even copy their poses. Silly.. I know but what the heck...
Were the instructions easy to follow? This is a simple t-shirt. Not much to it. The instructions are very good.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the fit. The shape of the neckline and the elbow patches. I thought I'd have to take in from the sides from hips because I am not a fan of swing tops but I didn't end up doing anything. I actually like the subtle flare.
Fabric Used: Digital print on Rayon Jersey from Elliot Berman Textiles.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I knew from looking at the photos that the neck is going to be too low for me so I raised it an inch. That's it. I do find the sleeves a little snug, so I might alter that next time.
I sewed clear elastic in the shoulder seams to prevent the seams from stretching out. I also used quilt basting spray to first temporarily attach the patches to the sleeves before sewing them down.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Of course. I am already planning my next version. This is going to be my go to pattern for cute knit prints. Did I say that I love the shape of the neckline? I used my coverstitch machine to finish the hems and neckline.
Conclusion: I really appreciate that this is a free pattern. What a nice gesture from Deer & Doe. But honestly, I love it so much that I would pay money for it What are you waiting for? Download the pattern and make one today.
