Favorite Tee Pattern
Ottobre 5/2016 #09
This is a PDF pattern with neckline, sleeve, and hem style/length options. I really like the knot hem option, but wanted to lower it to tunic length so it could be worn with leggings. I used the pattern front tunic length line option and transferred that length to the back pattern piece. The TUNIC option is a split hem with a lower back, so I had to adjust that since I wanted to attach the band to it.
Other alterations made: Swayback, small bodice graded out to a medium at the waist, raised neckline by 5/8", lowered the armscye 1", and adjusted the width of the sleeve by 1/2".
I purchased this fabric at Joann's.
I'm growing my gray out and it is a slow process, but it's getting longer. I'm trying to overcome the urge to cut it short and be done with this two-tone color I have going on.
I liked this outfit so much I decided to go ahead and make a second one right away. This is definitely my kind of style and I'm sure I will be getting a lot of wear out of these two outfits. The pattern name is Favorite Tee, and it is, but it is also my perfect tee!
I have made a few different legging patterns now and this Ottobre legging is so quick and easy. If I want a fast legging pattern to work with, I grab this one. It is one pattern piece with elastic sewn in the round to the top and then turned over and sewn again.
