I feel like I've been away from my sewing machine for aaaages! I've done the odd project and started a couple of other projects that are now staring me down, waiting to get wrapped up... But this here is one of the first things I've pulled off my sewing machine that is loved and gets worn and it feels SO.GOOD!
This tee is the brand new Trinity Tee pattern by Rock The Stitch. I got a chance to test... and felt like a terrible tester because I just couldn't seem to wrap my head around things. Super easy things, timing, just in general. It's been crazy and it feels like a bit of a fog. But none the less I completed one (and have another one cut) for the testing. Although it doesn't look top notch (again, I'm blaming that weird fog that came over me!) around the neckband and sleeve band areas, it may just be because I had skipped a step (not really paying attention was I!) while reading the instruction... But now that she's worn it, she won't let me put it back under my sewing machine to touch it up, so I guess it will have to do for now.
I sewed up a size 6 for A. She sits in between the two sizes, so she'll be able to grow into this one, but if you want a more fitted fit, then I think sizing down would work for you, since it has a slight A line to the silhouette! I used a quilting cotton I had on hand for the front panel piece, and matched it with a grey jersey I had grabbed from imagine gnats last year. You could also easily use a knit for the front panel!
You have the option of doing an exposed zipper down the middle seam in the back, which I opted not to do on this one to save a bit of time, but photos that came out during the testing period of the ones with a zipper have me sold! The next one I sew up will definitely have the exposed zipper!
I'm looking for quick sews to help me get back into the groove of this over here! And this one definitely fit the bill :) If you're interested in getting your own copy, you can use the code 'Trinity' to get 20%.
