Yet another Mandy

The (free) Tessuti Mandy boat tee is my go-to pattern whenever I want a quick top or some instant gratification.  I have sewn heaps.  And here’s another.

This one was inspired by a scrap of printed fabric from a friend. There wasn’t enough for a whole garment, so I scrounged around in my other scraps and found a solid linen knit (from Darn Cheap Fabrics a while back) that I thought coordinated. So I used the print for the front and the solid for the back and sleeves.

I sewed the pattern exactly as is, without modifications. There is a recent blog post from Tessuti about sewing this top with lengthened sleeves and a narrowed body. It really is rather adaptable. I secured all hem edges with Vliesofix and top-stitched them with the twin needle. The rest of the construction was on the overlocker.  There’s really not much more to say!

  1. This is a lovely combo of colours for you. I love the front panel. A great tee. You’ve only got the upper back adjustment to do and you’ll have the perfect fit. 😀
    As ever ,thankyou for sharing your sewing journey. It really is joy to see what others are making.
