Pattern Description: Simple T-shirt with interesting asymmetrical neckline.
Pattern Sizing:36-44. The pattern looked big so I made a 40 because I didn't need a night shirt.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?It had the same basic shape as the pattern picture, but I chose to adapt the pattern to my desires.
Were the instructions easy to follow?This Tshirt only has two pieces so it was fairly straightforward. I changed how the neckline was finished because I didn't care for how they achived the gathered look.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like the neckline. It makes a basic T shirt more interesting.
Fabric Used:Cotton knit that I had in my stash.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:The instructions have you bind the edge of the neckline without gathering the bodice and then gather it up with a brooch. I wanted a smoother look and had no plans to wear a brooch, so I gathered the left bodice edge and adjusted the binding to make it lie flat against my chest.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, I think I may make it again. It would be very comfortable made in a print in a tunic length styled up with a belt.
Conclusion: T-shirt with a twist. Makes up quick and easy and would be a good project for a beginner.
I took the easy way out copying my pattern review...I am too tired to type out another commentary about my new T-shirt. I have been running since I got up today and posting is my last act before I crawl in bed. It has been a crazy few days. Tom is on duty tonight and I am a little uneasy. Last Saturday when he was on duty I had a scare. I was up late working on my T shirt and around midnight I took Jo out for his last relieving before we went to bed. There was a man standing next to Tom's little truck...about 15 yards from the house! We live out of town. It's not like we live in a suburb and someone could just be walking by. You have to walk up a long gravel driveway and behind us is the woods. I ran in the house and called Tom because I figured the fire department would get here before the sheriff would respond. And besides, I wanted my hero here. So the guys came up and of course the man was long gone. It is such a weird feeling because I stood there for a minute staring because I couldn't believe it! I now have the shotgun by the bed...I would probably shoot my foot off, but Tom reassures me that if I just work the slide on the shotgun, it's the universal "GET the !@#$ out of my house!" sign. Scary...Scary! I finished stretching the boat upholstery over the frames today. It's fun to use air tools. I heart staple guns! I just need one more small end piece cut out to cover and then stick a fork in it, cuz it's done! I ran 5K this morning!!! I really want to get back in shape and lose the winter pounds. Tomorrow the dogs have to go get their shots and licenses renewed...the fun never ends around here! I need to go to bed...I'm rambling now...Good night!
