And just the thing for a fishing trip.....!
It is a very fast sew (once you figure out how the 2 pieces go together!) and really fun to make, but does use up quite a bit of fabric - due to the odd shaped pattern pieces you do need the full 2 yards of wide fabric which is quite a lot for a t-shirt.
I had to drape the pieces on my dress form to understand how to sew the first 2 seams. Hopefully my scribbles on the magazine showing these seams help - remember that the pieces are cut single layer of fabric and right side up, but sewn right sides together so it will make a bit more sense when you flip one piece over. Though maybe not much more sense as I've made it twice now and I still don't really understand how or why it works!! (Also note that the pattern piece numbers are 21 and 22, not 1 and 2).
Once those 2 seams are done it should look something like the finished line drawing and you just need to sew up the side/sleeve seams and hem the edges. Fortunately when worn the craziness of the pattern pieces give way to some nice draping and twisting effects.
My first version is in a very soft fuchsia knit and it is a little bit big, the neckline is quite wide and has a tendency to slip a bit. I do love the colour though so I might add some shoulder stays to deal with that.
I prefer the fit on my second version which I sewed up a bit smaller, plus I think the fabric content of this one is a bit different (though still unknown!).
