Whoops, I fell off the radar a bit there! The last ten days or so have been full on – my husband is in the midst of an attack of kidney stones (he’s had them twice before, so we know the drill), I’ve been to a good friend’s 50th birthday party, the kids have had a Girl Guides sleepover at Kryal Castle, there’s been work to go to as well – and once again my blogging lapses. This is another of last year’s garments. I reckon I’ll get all of 2016 up on the blog before 2018…
I got the twin needle out and threaded it with contrasting colours to highlight the raglan sleeve seams and to secure the neckband and hems.
I possibly sewed the size Medium. This tee has seen quite a bit of wear since I sewed it. The print has stood up fairly well, but with a degree of fade. I wash my clothes in gentle detergents and line dry, which helps the longevity of my garments.
From the pattern website: The Aeolian is the perfect boxy cotton tee, as tall as it is wide. It has a square shaped sleeve, strategically inserted to the armhole for maximum 3D body. Sized down, it makes a perfect sheath. Neat, but not tight. Excellent in a glamour knit for a super clean, mini, cocktail dress. Sized up it responds with mega drapes and kaftan-esque volume.
I know that this pattern will get more outings. I tend to sew it in knits, by I know that Anna has sewn it numerous times in wovens. I have also seen a superb sleeve alteration that introduces major volume, gathered into a cuff. Must get onto that at some stage! In the meantime, it’s all about the basic knit.
