Basic T-shirt tops


3  Maria Denmark 101 Kirsten Kimono Tshirts


3 M4261 view B - T-shirts







Pattern Description:
Variety of items  - I made VIEW B the 3/4 sleeve T-shirt top
Pattern Sizing:
XS - M (in my envelope)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes - well view B only shown as a dreadful sketch.....
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes BUT I ignored them as they have you set in a jersey sleeve?!!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Basic jersey top which I needed to fill a gap in the wardrobe

Fabric Used:
3 different stretch fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

1. Sew in sleeves in the flat
2. the seam allowance is 1.5cm so next time I will trim the pattern pieces down and use my standard 6mm for stretch fabrics
3. Used clear elastic to support neckline - next time I might add a bound neckline
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Have already sewn three and plan more - so YES and YES
Conclusion:

A quick and easy fitted top to make - love it.
