Style Arc Ann Tee

IMG_5736

Well hey there!  Recognize this shirt?  We all have them, don’t we?  Those race shirts that are too floppy and big to wear anywhere else but to do house work?  I thought I would take one of these shirts and test out my first ever Style Arc Pattern!  This Ann Tee pattern was a free download I got some time ago.  I had downloaded sizes 10 and 12, not really sure which one was for me.

This is the size 10 and it’s pretty much perfect!  There is an elastic ruching that is done on the side seams of the front pattern only, but I didn’t do that here,

Here’s a crappy indoor picture because it has rained solid for the last two weeks!  The neckband is also wonky because I was trying to recycle the existing band and had to piece it together; not the best job, I’ll admit.

You know the drill.  These downloadable patterns have to be printed out and taped together.  It’s not difficult.  Personally, I’m not a fan of the tiny 1/4” seams.  Not much wiggle room for alterations.  I like the fit of this tee shirt, not too tight, pretty feminine neckline, good fit on my shoulders.  I’m looking forward to trying the long-sleeved version, along with the elastic ruching.
