The pattern for this T-shirt is a hybrid of a pattern from the Built By Wendy ‘Sew U: Home Stretch’ and an exisiting well-fitting T-shirt. I made it nice and long to avoid middriff drafts! It has gathered sleeve heads and I used the ruffle idea from the Coffee Date dress. I’m very happy with the results, I made it last week and have already worn it heaps. I love how quick stretch garments are to make! Apologies for the me-centric photo! Not sure how to crop photos on my laptop.
