A Tale of Four Tees – #2

Today I have for you my #2 Tee for Patternreview’s August TNT Tee Contest.  I have used the very same pattern as my #1 Tee posted here, Butterick B5988, view B.  This time my fabric is a 96% polyester, 4% spandex ITY knit and it feels very comfy!

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

I have again made the neck opening wider than the pattern, by sliding the front and back bodice pieces 1.5 inches away from the centre fold at the neck, so that I can gather the neck opening all around.  This time though I have pulled the gathering tighter around the neck, so the neckline sits higher than before.

Nice dress! Thanks, I made it!!

I have also made wide bands to finish off the collar and sleeves.  Hmm, the band around the neck opening looks a little rumpled here, glad it lies better on me!

Ugh, I see a black thread hanging there!  Gotta snip that off before wearing it!  Here it is,  my finished #2 Tee, modelled by Dolly and myself…..

I have one more awkward shot here with Sophie trying to sneak up on my reflection!

Do you have photos where your pet has photobombed you?  I would love to see them.  I honestly don’t know which comes higher on my list, after family of course 😜, sewing or my two cats!

Have to go now…  I’m still working on my Tee #3 and #4. I don’t have much time left neither, considering right now I am waiting at the terminal to hop on a ferry to the Big City – Vancouver!  Whoo Hoo!  My sister and I plan on a full day of shopping tomorrow which, of course, includes IKEA and all the fabric stores we can hit in one afternoon – in exchange for me buying her lunch!  Gotta feed my fabric stash! (and my chauffeur!)

Happy Sewing!

  1. Hi. Very nice tee. I like the sleeve and collar bands, it ties the tee together nicely. (Forgive me, the coffee hasn’t hit the bloodstream and the brain is still in first gear). The fabric pattern is cool. I’m curious to see what new fabrics you purchased and the remaining two tees. As for Sophie, we all know she’s a star.
