Could that fabric colour be any more epic? I think not! I am obsessed with this shirt- it is a coral linen jersey from The Fabric Store in Brisbane and I truly think it is one of the nicest fabrics I have ever worn. It is lovely and cool and has an epic drape. Which is super important if you are trying to rock a sickbed blue steel look…
Like a tiger… rowwwr!
And let’s take a moment for a quick shout out on my Iris shorts. I seriously feel like someone gave Colette Patterns my measurements for the perfect shorts when it comes to these. The only adjustment I made as always is to add two inches of length. And they may have the cutest polka dot pocket linings ever. I dare you not to squee when you see these…
Amanda- focus! We are here to focus on the most epic Grainline tee. So let’s get discussing…
What I loved about this pattern:
- PDF assembling like a boss. This really didn’t take long to put together and it was easy to follow. Gotta love a Grainline pattern!
- How straightforward it was. Honestly, if I had not french seamed everything I think I would have this knocked out in an hour or so. Let’s not talk about how much extra time the french seams took… Especially if you start your first set backwards. But that totes did not happen to me, I heard about that from a friend on another blog or something… >.>
- The neckline. I often have trouble getting shirt necklines to be just right and this just hit things out of the park. No cray-cray shoulder/neck adjustments required. That makes for one happy sewist!
- Grade the pattern down in the waist and hips. This is a looser fit tee but this just does not work with my shape. I ended up taking in the sides 2 inches each side in the waist and hips to get the fit I like.
- And that’s it. I love this pattern as it is. Also I don’t like having just a single dot point because it looks lonely so I added this as a point to pad things out. Yup, I fear illness has made me crazy…er.
