As soon as I finished my anima
I went back to my machine and sewn the SJ tee for a matching outfit, you know, the one we need for long haul travel. Or Sophie’s
TWO+PIECE SET+ACULAR. After wearing for this pictures, I don’t think I will be wearing both as an outfit. Looks too casual. Hrh, like always, offered his views about my new ‘pyjamas’.
The pattern shape is to be worn slouchy on the body and fitted on the arms, with a very loose neckline.
|Sloppy Josephine tee: source papercut
I decided to sew one size smaller (XS) than my papercut size (S)… Stretch fabric, how bad could it be? Fit on the cuff is a little tight to my taste but the rest it’s perfect.
Just how I like my Tees- fitted at the shoulders and bust, loose on the stomach. Still deciding if its comfortable to wear with the cuffs like this or I need to remove them. Arms is my biggest body hang up.
Next one I will probably be sewing bigger for more slouchiness.
Searching online, many sewists found the loose neck too large. Mine neckline fits closely because of the contrasting fabric. I only had a small piece left so it is slightly gathered as I pulled it while sewing.
Papercut early patterns have been suggested by reviewers of running large.
I have only recently purchased SJ so I believe if their were running large in past, it has been adjusted and they are run true size. If you want to undersize, be aware!
I haven’t hemmed my tee yet. I may or may not…
