I’ve been avoiding my UFO’s, so I whipped this up really quick.
Fabric Used: Viscose Jersey from EOS
I don’t know what to say about this pattern.
It’s super quick and easy which is something I wanted. It’s just 1 pattern piece that wraps around itself in some weird way. And all the edges are unfinished.
I personally don’t like this pattern, but my reasoning is not fair. Everything I don’t like about it, I knew before I made the pattern. I do like the draped look, but I don’t like the whole asymmetrical hem. Plus the lower edge that goes over the hips is very fitted and the rest of the shirt is huge. I like the style of the shirt, but I don’t like the way this pattern goes about it. Does that make any sense?
And I couldn’t deal with the unfinished edges. To me, it made the shirt look home-made and cheap. Maybe it was my fabric, b/c everyone’s version on PR looks really cute. So I had to hem the bottom and add a binding to the neckline. The sleeve and the sleeve slit looked fine raw, so I left it that way.
I was being lazy and I didn’t feel like changing the thread on my coverstitch, so I just used my sewing machine and topstitched with the narrow zig zag, the same seam I sew my knits with.
I really wanted to make the hem straight, but the shortest part, is pretty short and it wouldn’t look right. Plus the bottom edge is so tight, I think it really needs to just kind of hang there and do whatever it wants to do.
Conclusion: After the finishing, I do like the shirt. It’s cute, and it’s easy to wear. But I don’t think I’ll use the pattern again. I think I would prefer using a different method to get the oversized t-shirt look. But who knows, it might grow on me as I wear the shirt.
