Have you made the Easy Tee yet? This pattern comes jam packed with options! I am not kidding. These are the 7th and 8th ones I have made and I still haven’t made any repeats. This pattern really is a whole lotta bang for your pattern buck! Here is a link if that is all you need to know. Keep reading if you want all the details.
The Easy Tee is one of my favorite and most used patterns. Most recently, I made a Momma Mia and Me set. She wanted a dress and I wanted a tunic. Since both lengths, as well as two others, are included with this pattern. We have already established #Whatmommawantsmommagets so I made the matching pair!
I used a summery print that is coming soon to Stitchin’ Pretties to make our garments. It is a lightweight and drapey knit and oh so pretty for summer. We have both worn our items since taking these photos and received compliments. It always feels good when someone compliments what you are wearing when you have made it. Even though this is a sneak peek at some upcoming Stitchin’ Pretties fabric, they have loads of beautiful prints right now! Laura is a speed racer when it comes to packing and shipping boxes. I love that she always gets them out the door for next day shipping! Shop here.
Now let’s talk about this tunic! I choose the tunic length and graded a 4x to a 5x. I love having comfy shirts around so I can just toss them over leggings and go on with my day. This is basically my go to wardrobe on the weekends and evenings. At home, I love to relax. I chose the scoop neck with the short sleeve option. I did a 1.5 inch bicep adjustment.
Momma Mia wanted a summer dress, Momma Mia always wants a dress. She opted for the shorter of the 2 dress lengths. She wanted 3/4 sleeves, pockets and the crew neck line. She also likes to have the extra fullness at the bottom so I rarely grade back in for her smaller hips. This dress is a XL graded to a XXl back in to a XL. The best part of sewing custom clothing is you always get exactly what you want!
