I’m back with my second Easy Tee of the Week. Easy Tee 5.0 This time we are doing the regular tunic version and I am using this amazing Double Brushed Poly from Sly Fox Fabrics! Do you see a trend here? I love DBP!! I love to sew with it. I love how it feels. I love the vibrant colors and prints. It really is one of my favorite fabric bases to sew with. As it warms up, people often say they get too hot while wearing it. I am so lucky that doesn’t happen to me. I love how soft and how it easily flows when I move about.
This fabric is brand spanking new at Sly Fox. The named it Liberty Belle which is super appropriate for the upcoming season! It released yesterday and is perfectly timed for all the Memorial and Independence Day festivities! I am basically crazy about floral anything and this print is no exception! You can see my picture under the photos of Liberty Belle by clicking here. I have already ordered 4 more yards of this print for a customer wanting a summer maxi dress!
I never really felt like I was into such girlie prints until I began making my clothing. It turns out, cute clothes just weren’t made with plus sized gals in mind. Sure there are some things out there, but overall it is difficult to shop ready to wear for my body.
This time I am wearing the regular tunic length without a band. I like the easy of making this garment and the comfort level of all things drafts at 5oo4. They sure know what they are going. I used the scoop neck collar again, but actually scooped it out a bit more than the pattern does. Summer is coming, It is going to be hot. I made a shorter sleeve, but not the shortest sleeve length in the pattern. This put the sleeve length at just above the elbow. Again, I have done a full bicep adjustment of 1.5 inches. This is typical for me to do in all patterns.
The Easy Tee comes packed with options and here is the run down.
- Shirt, Tunic, Short dress, and Knee Length Dress options
- Hemmed or Band options for the shirt and tunic
- Curved hem option that is in between the shirt and tunic lengths
- Pockets for the dress options
- Maternity pattern piece
- Optional waist tie and breast pocket
- Crew neck, scoop neck, or v-neck
- Hoods for both the crew and the scoop neck versions
- Cuffs for all sleeve lengths (sleeveless, short, 3/4, long, and extra long), including thumbhole cuffs if you want them!
