I recently picked up a copy of the Scout Tee pattern from Grainline Studio and made my first woven tee. I love how simple it was to put together, even if I did make my version more complicated by picking a wool coating that needed to be lined. But, hey, it will make a great layering and transitional piece for fall/winter.
I’ve decided that my next version of the tee will need to be taken in to a smaller size at the top. My hips are wide enough that I want to keep that width at the bottom, but the neckline was a little wider than I wanted and I had quite a lot of extra fabric around my chest, so I’ll be making some small alterations. Fortunately, since this is a print at home pattern, it will be an easy process to reprint and make those changes to my cut pattern.
Do you make clothes for yourself? What type of adjustments do you usually make to a standard pattern?
