Have you heard? Blank Slate Patterns just came out with their fall line. This is the Tee Times Three. The pattern has plenty of options including 3 different neckline options. Looking ahead to fall and winter, I chose to test the peter pan option with long sleeves. The fabric for this little top is a cute birdie print I found at Girl Charlee. The white polka-dots look line snowballs, yes? I kinda messed up on the peter pan collar though. There's a neck band that is supposed to stay on top of the collar. Since I was testing, I figured that it needed to be sewn down, and that Melissa just missed a step in the directions. Either way, the shirt looks pretty darn cute.
The back has a keyhole button closure for easy on/off.
This pattern is so versatile; there's also a plain t-shirt neckline as well as a hooded version. The fit is easy and relaxed and the directions are clear and simple. I would certainly recommend it as a wardrobe staple.
A-line A la Mode Dress. Can you tell I love me a peter pan collar or two? The fabric is coordinating prints from DS quilts for JoAnn's.
The fun detail here is the exposed zipper. I would say that Blank Slate Patterns has more of a relaxed fit, so you should probably size down if you prefer a more fitted look. The great thing is that I can see S fitting this into next spring.
So that's it. Another great collection from Blank Slates. Now I'm off to check out the Zippy Jacket.
