I was excited when I saw this tee - and it has delivered! More than just an ordinary tee, it can be made really elegantly, in both wovens and knits, and smartens up any jeans look. I measured as the instructions suggested and the fit is spot on. It is roomy but I wanted it roomy. Having said that, the armholes are too gapy in a slouchier fabric (I needed to take them in). I made the tee in both a stiffer, sturdier agf knit and a slouchy viscose and they both look great (although I need to shorten the viscose tee slightly but this is due to the fabric). I am sure to make many more of these!
This pattern came together so well and it’s now one of my favorite T-shirt patterns. I really appreciate the unique details that make this shirt stand out from the rest. PRO TIP: take your time with the bias binding and you’ll thank yourself with a beautifully finished garment!!
The sleeves were way to open for me as I don't care to show my bra so much!!! I think I need to try this pattern again with a different fabric and see if I can make that armhole smaller.
I whipped two of these recently and already have plans to make more. I can already feel that this will become a tried and true pattern for me.
I love the style and fit of both views. And D cup option for the win! It's so nice to be able to make a pattern right out of the box.
The instructions were great, and the top is very straightforward to put together. This is a beautiful, simple top, and I look forward to a wardrobe full of La Brea Tees!!
... it is a "must have". The simplicity is great.
