SEWN : LOOSE FITTING PLEATED T – SHIRT


Textiles Used:  Neon yellow rayon challis from Vogue Fabrics 

Sizing: I think I will go down one size next time.  Mostly for the shoulders.   

The Good: Great pattern.  Great for beginners.  I wore it once and received a lot of compliments on it.  I think that the pleating is modern while still being a simple easy to wear top with skinnies. 

The Bad: The only negative I can think of is that the instructions seemed to assume that you know a lot.  They might be a bit too sparse for the new sewist. 

Changes Made:  none 

Things I would change next time?  I would go down one size.  I think it would be fun to try color blocking on this pattern. 

Conclusion: I highly recommend this pattern.  Next time I think I will try it in a much more subtle fabric.  I love the comfort and easy of the top.

  1. I meant to add, I ususally start with an UK 10 for tops and do a FBA or in Burda a 36. However looking at the measurements they have a Uk 10 down as 35″ chest wich is 2 ” bigger than normal . Did you use your regular size or base it on the measurements.
