We shall say I put the fly shield this way on purpose; a design feature of sorts!! ;-)
Can never get that part of the waistband to turn when I use contrasting fabric for the facing. I don't tuck shirts so it's not a big deal but...grrr!
I added 1" to the waistline as I was afraid the denim wouldn't have enough give. I don't think I needed it...
These are an awesome addition to my wardrobe!
Earlier this week, Pattern Review had 20% off all pdf patterns and I had PayPal money 'burning a hole'. I went ahead and scooped up the In House Kimono tee (and the Named Jamie jeans).
When I should have been quilting; I was sewing a new tee!
I have a lot of this animal print fabric (I made capri length leggings for pj pants from it) and knew I would have a black scrap big enough for the yoke. I decided this would be good muslin material -- if it failed I could have a crazy animal print pj set and if it was good I would have a cute little tee!
The medium has a finished bust of 43.75" AND the same measurement at waist and hem. In some magical, mystical way, this shirt manages to be boxy and flattering. I really, really like it!
I think the center front is a tad too short (but I like the slight dip in the back hem) and I need some more room in the arm opening.
Gathers at the shoulder? Awesome
Speaking of...I've not yet sewn a v-neck and was a bit nervous to do this one! The instructions were straightforward but I still managed to screw it up a bit. I did this part on my machine (no way was I going to attempt it on the serger!) and it's *okay* but I know I can do better. I'm almost certain it will not stop me from wearing this tee. tomorrow.
There's a seam at center front and back. You could eliminate the CB seam if you weren't going to say, do a swayback adjustment or if you are using stripes and aren't trying to have extra seams to match up!
Again, this pattern is drafted for a D cup which is a total and complete WIN for the busty!
Yes, I did say you lose some. I finished my B6104 jacket and was so excited!! But it doesn't work. It just does not work. It fits so differently from my red one and I don't like it :(
I'd worked pretty hard on it too!
Looked good here...
I made a 1/2" shoulder pad and pinned it in on the right side so keep that in mind when you look at these photos! LOL!
ALL of these pictures to show that no matter what I did, I STILL did not like it.
Hopefully I can find it a home.
*I bought my denim fabric from Hancock fabrics and animal print knit, brown wool and pink pongee lining from FabricMart! :)
