THE ELISE TEE WITH PATTERN

You may remember from my last sewing post that I was keen on wearing more woven tops. Well, scrap that because I just sewed up two of these tees and I already want to wear them everyday.

The Elise tee is not quite a tank and not quite a top. It does not have sleeves so it is sort of, kind of like a muscle tee with a deep feminine neckline. I love it because it shows just enough skin but still has enough coverage for a crisp Vancouver spring. It is 14 degrees out and I want to wear tank tops but this tee with a sweater will have to do.

To make this your own favourite tee of 2013 I highly suggest you seek out the lightest weight jersey you can find. The black version is made from a modal spandex jersey. The white is made from a sheer 100% tencel jersey. What a find! I'll have to go and grab some more, I love the way it sewed up.

I will definitely be making this top with a woven front variation. Silk, please!

For those with keen eyes you might notice the white version has shoulder seams further to the front. I added these because after cutting out the front I noticed a fabric flaw on the right shoulder. Grrr. So I shook my fist a little and then used my problem solving skills to re-cut some new shoulder panels.

By the way, I also have a pattern for these pink shorts but I wasn't sure if people would be interested in them. They are a lined short with front pleats and sideseam pockets. I made them here in fuchsia linen but they would also be great in silk. Frankly everything is great in silk. If anyone would like me to share the pattern please leave a comment. Digitizing and grading these puppies will take a little encouragement.

Thank goodily goodness I hammered out all that formatting on my first pattern. This one took 1/4 of the time!

Note* I did not like any of the photos from this shoot where I made eye contact with the camera. Apparently I only liked photos where I look like I find the ground incredibly interesting and a little sad.

Happy sewing!

  3. Cute tee! I like how if you wore it in summer your shoulders would be protected from being burnt but the neckline is wide enough you can still feel the sun. I second the posts above, shorts pattern please!
