Adrianna of Crafterhours and I are practically twins! Both of us are allergic to purple, have 3 girls, and have basically the same body shape! My favorite part of Hey June patterns may or may not be the rainbowtized sizes sans purple. I've had the pleasure of testing/using most of the Hey June patterns- and you can tell Adrianna has really done her homework. The patterns are easy to read, assemble, and sew from!
My favorite part of this pattern was sewing a V-neck. I have never sewn one before! My machine was being a butthole, though, and I had to sew this entire shirt with my serger. The pattern comes with 4 sleeve lengths: short, elbow, 3/4, long. I hacked this one into a sleeveless top, since I live in HELL (er, Phoenix) and it is consistently 105 here lately.
To hack into sleeveless, I just trimmed the pattern top to the next size down (in this case I trimmed my XS pattern to the XXS line). Then I cut strip of my trim fabric the same length and just finished the sleeves the same way as the neck. I also nipped in the sides about an inch, because my rib cage is really narrow. This pattern comes in sizes XXS-XXL, which is a really great range!
I see myself sewing MANY more of these tees, in lots of variations! Thanks for another great pattern Hey June! Also- when you let your 9 year old be your photographer, you end up with gems like this.
My pattern testing buddy today is Kristin of Skirt as Top - who also has some amazing patterns/tutorials on her blog!
