Just when I thought I had enough "basics" in my pattern stash, designer Patterns for Pirates comes out with a new staple piece! The Favorite Tee (and the girl's sized Fav Tee) has loads of options from top, to dress with various hemlines and sleeve lengths, not to mention scoop or v-neck options as well! As a tester for this pattern, I made a dress length version for myself with 3/4 sleeves and a v-neck. I used some double brushed poly from Sew So English because I knew the drape would be beautiful for a cute little dress. I know a lot of my cuts from SSE are cut generously, and thankfully I stumbled across one in my stash that was a very generous yard and I was able to squeeze this dress out of it!
I also made a coordinating but not matching tunic top for my daughter using some pretty coral and cream stripes from Hobby Lobby. I love how the tunic and top lengths have a side vent to them. Such a classic little detail (and its honestly a whole lot easier to do than I had expected!)
Following the testing period, I made myself another version, this time opting for the split hem top length, and modified the sleeves to be a half/elbow sleeve length. I opted for a scoop neck on this one to try out the difference, and I honestly love both necklines equally! The fit on this is so spot on! I lengthened the top an inch for my height (I'm almost 5'7") and it hits exactly where I'd like it to! For this version I used a yard of double brushed poly from Knitpop. I've purchased a whole lot of fabric from there, but this is the first thing I've made with any of it!!
If you want to pick up the pattern, you can do so here, and it'll be on sale for the next few days! There is also the girl's version, and for a limited time a bundled version of the girl's and women's patterns!
