simple stripes

Another simple long-sleeved tee to add to Clare’s winter wardrobe.

Crafty Mamas May-Belle Tee (with straightened sleeve)

It’s a beautiful quality cotton/lycra knit that Karen gave to me. You have seen it before – Stella has a top in it.  The pattern is the Crafty Mamas May-Belle, but with straight sleeves. That was easily done by laying the gathered lower sleeve pattern piece at the end of the upper sleeve pattern piece to see how much length needed to be added, while keeping the lines of the sleeve slim..

It’s a nice slim fit without being tight, which is great for layering. Construction was the usual overlocker tee method – one shoulder seam, attach neckband, other shoulder seam, attach sleeves, sew up the side and sleeve seam in one pass. I secured the hems and the neckband with a simple zig-zag. Not much more to say about this one really!
