Description

Pattern Description: T-shirt with a relaxed comfy look and feel. Style is 1 piece without the shoulder seam, neck is cutout and bottom hem has a tie within the hem casing.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, and soooo comfy!

Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn’t follow the directions because it’s such a straight forward design.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It was really easy to make and the end product is so stylish and comfortable. I don’t think this shirt took me more than 30 minutes to finish, the part that took the longest was cutting the fabric out.

Pattern Sizing: S-L, I cut a small.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I didn’t have a ton of fabric to work with because I was using some jersey left over from a cardigan and the fabric was a weird shape, so I cut the 1 pattern piece up into 2. I cut the front part on the fold and the back with a seam down the middle. I forgot to add a seam allowance down the back so the t-shirt turned out a tiny bit smaller than it was supposed to I think, but it’s still loose.

Would you sew it again? YES! I want 10 more of these! It doesn’t even take a full yard the way I cut it in pieces.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes, It’s complicated at all, it’s even easier than other t-shirts I’ve sewn and that’s saying something.
