Oh, I have another favorite TNT! This is the Ann T-top. It is described as a t-shirt that hides a multitude of sins with side-rouching make it with long or short sleeves.
As you can tell, my sleeves are neither long nor short, I made this top with recycled fabric from a top I didn't like the style of but loved the fabric so I took the entire thing apart and these are the sleeves from the original and I left them as is.
This is a pattern that any beginner can tackle this with great success! It is extremely well drafted and I made a straight size 12 with no alterations and I am very happy with the fit.
This pattern calls for negative ease but I honestly didn't want it that tight. I am thinking I could have sized down if I wanted to but overall I like this.
As with any StyleArc pattern the instructions are minimal but if you have an idea of how to put together a T-shirt, you won't even have to read the instructions.
I did just to determine how to complete the rouching. But after I tried the rouching with the elastic I decided to forgo that step and gather the fabric. This worked out really well!
I really like to have my gathers nice and even and this way was a winner!
Another deviation from the instructions is when I added bands to the lower hem and the sleeves. I had just a little bit of fabric left and since I love it so much I decided to use it for that application.
See how neat and tidy the neckline looks?
I love my top and I can see making many more of these!
Thanks for reading!
