This is a free pattern from living with punks.
The first alteration I had to do was the size. The pattern was a size 5 and my daughter is a size 3. I printed out the pattern and did the alterations according to my daughter’s chest measurements, the shoulders and the length. I also had to bring up the neck line as well as the arm holes.
Then was the time to colour block the T-shirt. I added a more curvier line on the front and a straight line at the back.
And then the high low hem as a finishing touch.
I had to beg her to remove it to get the photographs of the T-shirt , after she had her last try on.
I am very much pleased with the out come because the fabric was from two old polos of my husband’s. Yeah I know I should have done this during the kids clothes week. But didn’t have time.
This is the first time I used the collars as the ribbing for the neck and arm holes. I very rare get the necklines right without puckering. So why shouldn’t I be happy?
Till next time.
