Let's twist again... ♫

Inspired from this pattern I drafted some new versions
That was fun! :-) I really felt free because I drafted without so much calculating.

To get a one piece shirt which should be much more ‘regular’ I tried to reduce the twist.
See the drawings below to follow my pattern alteration. The red line (center line) shows how much it is rotated. I also added a drawing and a review of the original pattern.

The red shirt is cut out on straight grain – it has two side seams.
The green one ist cut on bias – one side on fold. It’s neckline was formed with the help of my breakfast plate. ;-)

Material Notes

red shirt: cotton jersey
green shirt: light weight viscose jersey




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Cotton, Blends

      You might try the red top which I uploaded recently: here
      It is a great simple pattern which comes with a waistband option and long sleeves.

    Something with the asymmetry draws me in…

    Simply cannot say anything new… So inventive, and your variations in solid colours are quite dramatic… would like one… Bravo again!

    beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!! I think with solid-color fabric the effect of the cut is extremely well!
