Always a pleasure getting your patterns. Some are easier than others. But makes me push myself into new experience in my sewing skills.
I just finished the second one with bands on the cuffs and waist. Forgot to check my fabric stretch and cut it out of a rayon 2-way stretch fabric. Using the bands on the waist and cuffs make a lightweight knit really fast and easy to finish...no more rippled hems! Because my fabric was so delicate and stretchy, I did use tissue paper when sewing some of the seams, and also used 1/2" stay tape under the back edges for more stability before adding the snaps. It turned out great! I would definitely recommend this adorable shirt pattern!
The directions are clear and easy to follow. I adapted it into a dress for my granddaughter's doll and it is very easy to do that. It fit our plumper PC dolls with little adjustment.
I love this pattern. Perfect fit every time. I love the cuffs and waistband. Much easier then hemming:)
I made the version without the bottom band or sleeve cuffs. My choice of a interlock knit was not the best, but the shirt is still adorable despite less drape in the collar than I'd like. This is just as fast and easy to sew as a standard tee shirt. I think I'll be using this pattern often.
