Pattern Description:
Alexa T-Top is the perfect wardrobe staple!
This comfortable t-shirt style features self binding at neckline, a slight flare at hips and 4 sleeve length options, short/cap, elbow, 3/4 and full length.

Pattern Sizing:
Petite, S, M, L and XL.
I made the small with petite hem length.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it did.
Here are the variations I made.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were - easy to follow - easy to understand - easy to read.
If you buy the hard copy version, the pictures are in colour.
The font size is large - and a bonus really when you're sewing late in the night and are tired.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is a basic tee and you can make this your TNT pattern.

Fabric Used:
Poly cotton.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did my usual roll shoulder adjustment and sway back adjustment.

All of my knit top patterns have a shaped centre-back seam that follows my sway back.
Here are the details.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. Having a TNT tee is a must for weekend or weekday wear.

You achieved a nice top. I really like that print version (I'm partial to prints like that).
