HAPPY EASTER! HE IS RISEN!!!
What a beautiful weekend it's been! Good Friday, sunshine, Easter Sunday, fun times with family, April Fools Day, and more sunshine! I've been sewing quite a bit the past few days, with some extra motivation from my Spring Break Fabric Giveaway Challenge! I have one new thing to show you today, and another one for tomorrow!
Presenting: The Yellow Chevron Easy Tee! (or the Sunshine Tee, as the hubs calls it)
Fabric: Riley Blake The Sweetest Thing Jersey Knit Chevron Gold, purchased on Etsy
Yardage: 1 yard
Time to Make: 1 hour? It was late - lol
Pattern: Leanne Marshall for Simplicity 1690
Changes: Lengthened sleeves a bit, omitted neck facing
Originally I was going to use this fabric for another Renfrew. However the print was just too busy, IMO, for all those pieces - neck binding, sleeve band, waist band, etc. I needed something a little more plain. I purchased this pattern a day or so ago for the adorable skirt, and I didn't realize it also came with a top pattern! While the pattern was intended for a woven, it totally works with a knit also. It was a very quick make - only two pattern pieces (I omitted the neck facing and just turned under the neckline and the sleeves).
I really love how this turned out! I have been wearing it non-stop since I made it :) Except of course when I wore the Easter dress I also made (watch this space!). I can't wait to try it in a woven fabric - I'm thinking it would be a great pattern for a tricky fabric like chiffon. I love this tee SO MUCH! It was super easy, it's very comfy cuddly, and such happy colors! Goes very nicely with my Easter flowers, don't you think?
