Yep, it's Friday! And yes, I am still a little behind, but not as much behind as it may seem as I will have a Fabulous Free Pattern Friday post up later today. Yea! Not that I need an excuse, but I had a doctor's appointment yesterday that put me through the mill, so by the time I got home, I was ready to hit the bed and sleep. No worries, I'm fine, so all in all a good day.
I came across this free summer tee pattern from I Candy and thought it was so cute and a great idea. It's the perfect pattern for using up some pieces that are just enough for a front or a back but nothing more. Be warned up front that there is a draw back to this pattern, it only comes in a medium size. They do give instructions on how you can enlarge it a bit. For me, I did take it in a little and gave the top a little shape at my waist. Taking it up a little will not distort the look.
So here's my version of the top, actually, it's the first version of the top. I really do like the pattern. I used a piece of bamboo knit for the front and a piece of stretch lace for the back.
Since this is a very basic tee, you can always lengthen the pattern and make a great, easy fitting summer dress.
The pattern prints out with the front and back overlapped. My suggestion is to print 2 copies of the pattern and then you'll have a front and a back pattern piece. The pattern includes a 1/4" seam allowance, so no need to add unless you would like a little more seam allowance.
Once again,you can find the pattern HERE.
