Hi Gang! I am here with my first fabric share for Sly Fox Fabrics. This is my classic fit t-shirt that I mentioned on Saturday. I decided to go with the Sinclair Bondi classic fit T shirt pattern. This is the first time I have sewn a Sinclair pattern and I was very happy with it.
The directions were easy to follow and the sizing great. I loved the final fit of the shirt and have sewed up another one already. I love when I find basic patterns that really fit well and give me the option for future makes or hacks.
Let’s take an inside look at the DTY fabrics that are on sale at Sly Fox Fabrics! This gorgeous print is called Floral Glen Plaid and I absolutely adore it. I love how the plaid makes the background softly printed while the black floral print is the star. This fabric is so easily wore for many occasions. You could dress it up or dress is casual. I paired my look with fitted jeans and black booties for a simple casual look.
If you haven’t used DTY before, I suggest you give it a try. It quickly became a person favorite for me! I love the cool smooth hand, the drape is exceptional and the print colors remain bold and vibrant! I love these things.

View C – Hemmed hip length with scoop neckline and 3/4 sleeves
View D – Hemmed longline length with crew neckline and long sleeves
Compatible with Add-on Puffed sleeves pack (opens in a new window).
I made View B. I hemmed the longer length on this version and used the wider scoop neck. I appreciate that the “wide” scoop isn’t so wide it shows my bra straps and it doesn’t gape open when I bend!
I loved that this pattern offered several necklines in addition to the length and sleeve options. I think in the future I will take a look at the add on sleeve pack because I really like the fit of the pattern base and different sleeves will really add a new feel to the shirt.
