Who doesn’t love options?! The Rowan Tee, which is the latest sewing pattern from Titchy Threads has a lot…A LOT! 144 combinations to be exact! You can make it long sleeve, short sleeve, with cuffs or hems, add a hoodie, pocket or some stripe accents.
I went pretty basic with this one. The warm weather is coming, so a short sleeve tee was a must. I used an old tshirt of hubby’s and some scraps for the contrast stripes. I love re-using mens tops. You get a lot of fabric to work with and the images always end up larger than life! Sticking with the red and blue theme from the glasses, I added one red and one blue contrast shoulder stripe and used red and blue thread for the double needle stitching on the bottom hem. I re-used the hems from the original sleeves to save a little time.
Most of the tees I made for Roman were using Rae’s Flashback Skinny Tee pattern, but they don’t fit Ted as well as they did Roman. Ted is more of a regular fit tee kinda toddler, and the Rowan Tee is just right! I cut out the size 2 for Ted without really thinking about it, then after measuring him up, realised I should’ve cut the 18-24mo. I cut the width and length of the tee down, but the armholes and neck are still from the size 2. Next time I will cut the straight 18-24mo and it will be perfect.
Ted’s been walking for about a month and is already running around any chance he can. I think I’ll have to wait about 2 years until I can take an un-blurry photo of him.
As always, Laura’s patterns have clear easy to read instructions and great photos. They also come with a print shop file which I looooove! No trimming and sticking heaps of pages together. I am a big fan of her patterns and have sewn up her Small Fry Skinny Jeans several times. Want to try out the Rowan Tee or some of Laura’s other patterns?
