Pattern: Simplicity 4076, View D
Fabric: Cotton interlock (100% cotton)

Description: Scoop neck t-shirt

As you see, I'm getting all of the easy pieces out of the way before I run into those that will take a lot of time to resolve fitting issues.

I wanted a “good” t-shirt, that I could dress up or down. I was inspired by the luxurious Michael Stars t-shirt and a couple of others. I chose this simplicity pattern because it closely resembled the very popular scoop-neck style. This pattern is so simple that you could easily make a couple a day! It has 4 pattern pieces: front, back, sleeves and neckband.

I had seen many reviews at Pattern of this shirt and the thing that I noticed most was that they seem to run very short and on me it would look like it shrunk in the dryer... not cute. To solve this problem, I added 3” to the length. When I made my muslin, I noticed that the neckband was not quite wide enough (for me), so I added about 3/8” to it. All of the pieces were very well drafted. The only error I found was that the notches on the side seams did not match, but that was not big deal. I have completely fallen in love with this shirt and this will be my “TNT” t-shirt pattern.
