As I look in my closet, one thing my wardrobe is lacking is solid colored shirts. So when Hot Pattern’s released their Fast & Fabulous Shirt Tail T’s, I knew that I would have to make several for a summer staple shirt.
For my first version, I made a shirt in a heathered jersey with a solid (non-pieced) front (this pattern is designed for wovens as well, but couldn’t find a material that I liked enough to start with that). I have to admit, my printer had issues with this PDF (the registration marks didn’t even show up on my paper), but after several conversations with Trudy, several trial\errors, we couldn’t figure out what was going on other than my printer just didn’t like the PDF. I was still able to put the pattern together, I just skipped overlapping the pages together).
Putting this shirt together was very easy – in fact it probably took me longer to tape the pattern and cut the fabric than what it did to sew this one up! The fit is very loose, however, it still manages to look fitted along the bust which looks very flattering…. just be sure to stitch this up in a lightweight or fluid fabric, otherwise this top will look very bulky. Overall an easy top to wear for summer… If I get to wear it, I noticed Taylor had her eye on this one!
