I finally spent some time down in the sewing room and finished up the tee I was making. Not too bad for not having sewn knit fabric, or clothing for that matter, in many, many years. It's a tad bit bigger than I would like, so I'll make the next one a size smaller with some adjustments so it still fits in the middle.
I jumped into the deep end on with one, and didn't take time to check all my measurements against the pattern. I only paid attention to bust and hip measurements. The shoulder to bust drop on this pattern is deeper than my body, so I'll have to figure out a way to shorten that on the next one. I might make the sleeves a bit longer/flutterier (is that a word?) on the next version too.
Although I like the comfort of this loose fit top, and the way it doesn't cling to my tummy bulge, I think the style actually draws attention to the fact I'm trying to hide the mid-section. It's a tad too long for my liking too, so maybe I'll use elastic on the side seams to add ruching.
All in all, I do like the top. Not so sure I like hubby's angle on the photo though. I cropped out the bottom portion, trying to make it look better. He's the one who plays with photography, so why on earth would he take a picture of me at an angle that made my legs look like a stick figure and my top look bigger than it already is?
I think he was too interested in taking selfies of himself! I discovered this while downloading my photos. Not full of himself at all, is he?
