It is fast, easy, and creatively satisfying. This is view D with the long sleeves.
As promised, it fits through the neckline, shoulders and bust. It skims the rest. Just right.
The neck band actually sits better on my neck than it does on the dress form. It is flat up against my neck and feels great the way a rayon knit often does.
|After seeing a tee shirt made by Margy, I was anxious to cut the neck band on the bias.|
The main fabric is a rayon knit purchased at Five-Eights in Charleston, SC. This is a sweet shop catering to new sewers, I think. They carry mostly quilt cottons, but some nice rayon knits too. The sleeves and neck band are from remnants of a rayon knit purchased in Montreal.
The points appear to be in the side seam, but they are actually part of the front hem shape. The hem shapes make this pattern a bit special. View A is a standard length tee but with a curved hem. Other views include asymmetrical points in the hemline, made even prettier with the layering suggested on the pattern envelope.
When I first saw this pattern, I thought, oh, but I already have several good tee shirt patterns. I'm glad I bought it. It has some easy and fun variations. This is a reminder of why I love to buy and make patterns.
