Bloody brilliant! A t-shirt that actually fits out of the packet!!!!! No more faffing about with fit issues
This was the first time I ever graded a pattern between sizes...however, I did with the easy instructions and grid patterns. This is the best fitting T I have ever worn, I have made 6 already.
Love the fit of this top. Couldn't believe it actually fit perfectly with no adjustments - the sizing is spot on. I highly recommend!! One thing I would like to try but cant figure out how to do it, is to make the front of the top into a double layer. I have purchased tops before that have a double layer and they drape really well in the front - the outer layer flows over the under layer. Sometimes a single layer fabric clings to your bra or creeps up in front needing to be pulled down constantly...especially when using lighter weight knits. There is a way to do this with all the seams hidden on the inside - but even though it seems like a simple idea - there must be a trick to it that I can't figure out. Would love to have a "side" tutorial on how to do this.
I never realized what a difference cup size makes in a tee shirt. I loved this pattern and the v neck, which is harder to find sometimes. I found the directions a little confusing about how to sew the v neck but that probably just means I need to sew one in every color and practice! I wear this tshirt all the time and it’s one of my very favorites.
