My second Lydia t shirt. This pattern is a great TNT pattern. I made this one size 44, which makes a loose fitting t shirt for me and a perfect fit for a nautical, breton inspired top. I am quite pleased with it and I’ve worn it several times already.
I made this mostly with my serger and with some double needle topstitching for the hems on my sewing machine. I added 1/4" twill tape to the shoulder seams. My only modification was to raise the front neck about 1.5", eliminate the facings and make a neck band instead.
Cotton poly blend Jersey.
