Easy Knit Tee – Butterick 4922
Hello everybody! I finished a new project today 🙂 Remember the colorful primary plaid fabric from my previous fabric stash post? I decided to use it. I initially wanted to make a dress but decided I need some more cute tops. I mostly live in t-shirts and tank tops. So I decided to go for a more funky t-shirt. I used Butterick 4922 from the 1970s.
I used one that was actually a size up for me, size 20 with a bust of 42. I like to have a variety of tight and oversized tees. For this top, I wanted oversize. I shortened the length of the bodice to hit around my waist and shortened the sleeves.
I added orange rick-rack around the collar for contrast. I left the sleeves and bottom hem raw. I like that I can leave the sleeves rolled or unrolled, where they hit below my elbow. A fun, free-spirited shirt!
I will probably be using this pattern again at some point. Very simple, and I don’t have to worry about finding my zig-zag foot…since I made it oversized, I was able to use straight seams 😛
I need to start buying more vintage knits. I’m a very simple person when it comes to outfits. I like tees + skirts/shorts + tights or dresses. That’s 90% of what I wear.
On another note, there will be a shop sale next week, July 1-4 in the Mixy Mitzy Etsy store.
