Good morning, friends!
Well, it has been the Summer of Pattern Tours around here! I really couldn't be more grateful for that - my sewing mojo has been on quite the rollercoaster ride for the past few months! These lovely patterns I get to stitch up are like a burst of fresh new energy. :)
This pattern is a super cute tee or dress with HEAPS of options, like color-blocking! I chose the tee - we are lacking in the tee department over here - especially basic, goes-with-everything, tees. So that's exactly what I made!
I used the same drapey, delicious black modal as I did for my Lady Skater dress. It's the softest stuff ever. Perfect for a comfy basic tee!
BUT I didn't want to go tooooo basic! So I added a back yoke panel in this cotton feather print I've had kicking around for a bit. I love the result! It's got a similar vibe to color-blocking, but the main pattern pieces stayed intact. Seriously, I want this shirt for myself, and I'm scheming ways to make that happen. Ha!
This fabric is like sewing butter, so I knew I wasn't going to have great luck turning and stitching the neck and arm hems. I opted to serge on thin strips of banding to finish these areas. It's as nice a finish as I was going to get with this material! For the hem, I used a double needed and some iron-on stabilizer.
Emmy has had a cold all week so it was a struggle getting her into not pajamas, and out the door to take pics. I'm glad we did though! She looks so cute in her Tumble Tee! And she's also rocking some minty Hosh Pants! Great combo, eh!? :D
Seriously, tell me you don't want this entire outfit?!?
I adore this pattern, and it's designer! It's a great staple piece, which I LOVE. I really want to try a color-blocked version. I can see this pattern going miiiiiiles and miles for us!

Gratuitous shot of my baby still looking like a baby. Shots like these are awfully fleeting lately! SAD.
