Megan Nielsen Rowan Tee (Curve)

Megan Nielsen Rowan Tee (Curve)

My pursuit of the perfect v-neck tee continues! The #SewcialistsTNTee challenge gave me the push to try another pattern. This is the Rowan Tee from Megan Nielsen. I used a cotton jersey in navy and white stripes from Maai Design. This tee has negative ease around the bust, with only a small amount around the…

(Another) Seamwork Aberdeen – modified

(Another) Seamwork Aberdeen – modified

Thrilled to find myself with another TNT pattern in the Seamwork Aberdeen, particularly as it meets my MakeNine goal of using my subscription patterns more regularly. This is my third Aberdeen (see the others here) and this time I modified the back to be a much higher round neck, rather than the v on both…

Every now and again, you have a mental image of how you will look in something and it could not be further from the reality when you make it. As part of Mission TNTee, I recently made the Mimi G Saldana Tee. I should be up front and say I don’t think this is in…

Madeit Patterns Hug Hoodie

Madeit Patterns Hug Hoodie

I really love the vibe of Madeit patterns. It’s casual stuff you feel comfortable wearing but usually with a twist that makes it not boring. Madeit is part-owned by a woman of colour (looks like two women own and run the company) and are on the Shut Up and Sew safe space to shop list.…
