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 a little better on my neck than it does on the dress form. It is not completely flat up against my neck but 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.
