Like this T-shirt a lot. When I took the pattern out of the envelope I saw it nips in a lot at the waist for an hourglass figure, which I do not have. Easy to fix, though. I just added 8 inches at the waist side seams and re-drew the lines. I made a size 24, with the waist adjustment. I also narrowed the shoulders by about an inch. The G/H cup fit well. The end result nicely skimmed my body without clinging … which is just the way I like it. I made the long sleeves for winter. There are more of these in my near future. An easy well-drafted pattern, that fits well.
I have made two garments with my pattern with little detail changes the second time-contrasting sleeves cut and hemmed longer to turn back a cuff for example. Pattern was super easy to fit as it was very true to measurements. I plan on thinking up several more ways to change up this versatile style.
Such a relief to take a pattern out of the package and have the chest fit. No dreaded FBA. A few little tweaks in the hip and waist and perfection. I have made this pattern twice and have more planned.
I love the pattern, it was easy to use and now I'm having fun making lots of t-shirts. Yay!
I love the Cashmerette company
The patterns are all fabulous
