Pattern Review: Carousel Top knit shirt
Ahh, summer. A time for tee shirts and shorts. Tees can be oh so practical but it is also nice to make ones that have some special details that set them apart. Today I am reviewing a tee that has some simple but lovely feminine details for your basic tee shirt that your tween can live and play in.
Name of the pattern: The top is the Carousel Knit Shirt.
The pattern features:
Pattern Source: It is designed by Andrea Pannell for Go To Patterns.
Sizes available: It comes in sizes 12 months to 12 years.
Special materials required: The top is designed for knits, and so that is a must. But the key hole has two options; one with the key hole closed, and one with a button closure. If you choose the button, you will need a button.
Skill level required: Andrea labels this pattern as a Beginner and I totally agree. Her directions are clear and the details are nice but not at all complicated.
How you came to choose the pattern:
I do not have enough time to sew all of Abi's summer wardrobe so I decided to make just a couple cute pieces. I was brainstorming options and that is when remembered this top. I had sewn it in the past and liked it.
Good: It is a lovely tee shirt with sweet details that do not take a lot of extra time.
Bad: I have nothing bad to say. The pattern is clear and the top is cute and it has a pretty timeless design.
Overall pattern rating: I give this pattern 5 bolts!
