Winter Wear Designs (https://goo.gl/ZhZPMK) just launched their Banded Hem Tee as part of their Wardrobe Builder Collection. This pattern is one that you NEED as part of your collection for sew many reasons! Not only does it give you the options of a shallow or deep scoop banded neckline, but it also comes complete with the options of a cowl neck or a hood! It even more versatile with the options of 3/4 sleeve or cuffed long sleeve, as well as coming in either top or tunic length. It will quickly become your go-to pattern for knit tops!
When I sewed mine up, I chose the deep neckline with the hood, and I was not let down! The pattern pieces and instructions were clear and easy-to-follow. This pattern suggests starting with your bust measurement as your base size, and then grading up or down from there. Since it uses knits, there is some ease, both in the fabrics and in the pattern. I used So Sew English Fabrics (https://goo.gl/X5nECa) in hunter french terry for my main fabric, and scots plaid for my cuffs, hood lining, and band.
This pattern is easy to sew up, requiring little time before you can be sporting your gorgeous new banded hem tee, tunic, or hoodie! It has loads of helpful hints and tutorials for achieving the proper fit.
