For a Cooler Evening
This top is a simple t-shirt made from our pattern #102 Sweater Twin Set - designed especially for knits.
I make all my t-shirts and stretchy tops from this versatile two-piece set. Options include short or long sleeves on both pullover and cardigan. The pullover has a basic jewel neck. For myself, I prefer a v-neck, so once the shoulders were sewn, I put on the top in front of a mirror, marked a V point placement (making sure to allow for seam allowance) then re-cut the neck .
The t-shirt fabric is a fine gauge rayon knit with a dash of spandex. The collar shown is a tube made from the t-shirt remnant. It pops over the head like a necklace and up-scales an otherwise plain t-shirt to a dressier top.
The casual pants shown here are made from our pattern #605 Jeans.
For this pant, I kept things real simple and didn't do any of the jeans style top stitching. Fast and easy! The pant fabric is a stretch woven in cotton/polyester with 3% spandex.
Fabrics for both t-shirt and pant come from Telio, Montreal - suppliers to fabric stores throughout Canada and USA.
We wish you a fun and enjoyable summer.
All best from everyone at Petite Plus Patterns
