Added Nov 3, 2013
My very first knit project! I used the Burdastyle ‘Sadie pattern’, to which I added kimono sleeves and a boat neck by following the tutorial from Analog Me (http://analogme.typepad.com/analog-me/2011/05/how-to-draft-a-kimono-sleeve-t-shirt.html/). I made a few other alterations – an FBA of 1" (for a size 38), and a few tucks from the back. The neckline is just turned under and topstitched, with the hem and sleeves finished with a twin needle.
It actually turned out very well, despite what the photos look like! I might try to take more that have less overexposure/hunchback to convey the elegance of the tee better.
Mystery olive green double knit, found in garage; Vilene bias tape for shoulders and neckline
