What did I like about this T shirt pattern? Hooray, Pamela has done the work for us. She's put those common adjustments into the pattern so I don't have to mess with making them on the paper pattern at home (the chore I dislike the most.) There's already a forward shoulder, a darted front option, a widen sleeve bicep, some "essence of waist" shaping and some hip room. She measured us at the high bust (and a tip, do this snugly) and selected a pattern size for us and advised us to make a petite adjustment if needed (most of us did) which was already marked on the pattern and advised us to use either the plain or darted front (again, most of us needed the darted front.) She had excellent advice about sewing a side dart in knitted fabric, one of my personal challenges, great pressing tips and by the end of the day everyone had a fitted, but not over-fitted, feminine flattering T without the usual excess underarm fabric or droopy shoulders. I don't have finished pictures since I'm going to do a center back seam for my swayback and a little tweak for that lower right shoulder adjustment but will do a full pattern review soon. In the meantime, nothing but pictures of people learning, sewing and having a fun, productive day. If I'm going to spend a full glorious day in June indoors, then this was the best way to spend it.
