I’m back and with another Patterns for Pirates make. I’ve honestly been obsessed with her patterns lately and have been making a bunch of basics. This one is her newest pattern called Sweet Tee, it has different variations of sleeve, length and hem. She also has Sugar Pie which is a little girl’s version. Okay, enough about P4P and my infatuation with her patterns.
I’ve been trying to build up my wardrobe by making basic tees that I can wear under hoodies or with fun printed pants and shorts. Hopefully the weather will continue to warm up and I can actually wear shorts! Speaking of shorts, next month’s Minerva make will be shorts :)
My measurements were 36-30-39, according to the P4P measurements I would be med-large-med. I printed out my pattern, pieced it together and then graded my size. All seam allowances on P4P are 1/2?, which I followed except for the sides I did a 1/4? seam. Overall I think it fits well and looks nice. I love the banned option at the bottom because it helps to cover up any muffin top.
For the fabric I used a Plain Cotton Stretch Jersey Fabric. There are 12 different colors on Minerva Craft’s website but I figured you can’t go wrong with white or red. I decided on the red before I dyed my hair and now I’m wondering if it clashes:
Either way, I’ll still wear it. The tops are super comfy and go with everything. The pattern only took me about 2 hours total to cut and sew. I love my quick sews!
Nikolai was getting really mad at me for taking pictures and ignoring him. I had to crop the pictures because in most of them he’s giving the camera (Daddy) a dirty look.
I plan on making a few of these tops. I want some tunic length ones to go over leggings and I want some versions with no banded arms or waist. I always have big plans, but you know time is a hard thing to come by.
Overall – great pattern and I’d recommend it! I’ll leave you with a picture of Nikolai yelling that we are done!
