Since the pattern only went to EU size 42 I decided to frankenpattern it with another t-shirt pattern I have that fits really well. I made it 42 over the bust and 46 over the waist and hips.
I shouldn't have... The t-shirt turned out way too big, everywhere! Iif I make it again I think I will make it size 40 over the bust and 42 over the waist and hips.
Or it could have been the fabric that wasn't compatible with the pattern, but I don't know why that should be, because the fabric is just some viscose jersey.
Anyway, I had to take it in about 5 cm/2 inches on each side at the hips, to get a decent fit.
I added bands to the sleeves and made them and the band at the neckline a solid colour to add some interest. I think the result turned out good.
I would like to make the t-shirt again in a striped jersey, but I have to get some first! :)
I have loads of other plans but I keep seeing great new things all the time, so it's hard to decide what to do next. I have seen some cropped trousers in hot pink cotton sateen which I can't take my mind of, maybe those are next on my sewing list.
So did you get any sewing done this weekend? Do you have spring sewing plans?
Bye for now,
