Striped Neptune Tee
If you’ve been around here for awhile, you know my love of all things Pattern Anthology. Four of my favorite designers put out a collection of patterns together for a limited time discount, then the patterns go to their individual shops at regular retail price. Every single time a new Pattern Anthology collection comes out, I’m so impressed. There’s usually some squealing involved. (You can see a few of the things I’ve sewn from previous collections here) The ladies have just come out with another fabulous women’s collection, 8 Days a Week, and I sewed up the Neptune Tee.
I sewed the simple version, but the pattern comes with these amazing triangle cutouts.
A T-shirt and jeans is pretty much my mom uniform, and I love the fit of this tee. I brought mine in around the hips a little bit, but made no other alterations and it fits perfectly.
The pattern comes together super quickly – a naptime sew (yay!) So basically it’s quicker to make myself a new shirt than to wash one that’s dirty. Hmmm….
I especially like the armbands. … and this fabulous GLITTER striped fabric that I’ve been hoarding (from either JoAnn’s or Hancock Fabrics a couple years ago) Since my life is all superheroes and Thomas trains, a boy mama needs a little glitter fabric in her life, am I right?
While you’re looking at this gorgeous tee, you can also notice that I have to remove my stove knobs … life with a toddler, my friends.
I was given the Neptune Tee pattern in exchange for testing, but I always stand by my reviews – and I super love this shirt. You can get yours along with the rest of the 8 Days a Week collection until October 6th, or from See Kate Sew after that date.
Happy sewing, friends!
Super cute! I want glitter knit toooooo!
So cute! I want glitter knit fabric tooooo!
The glitter is a cute subtle touch to a tee. And many claps of approval for such a cute fit, and those lovely coverstitch hems.
Sewing new tees instead of washing old ones…love it! Also, taking your stove knobs off is brilliant! I need to do that right now because ‘the ships captain’ keeps twiddling them and turning off my pancakes. Tee and jeans is my mum uniform too.
Ooooh, you are trouble! I looove the neptune tee and marigold dress!
