Seafarer top review

I am so excited to be a part of the Seafarer Top pattern tour! I really wanted to sew more for myself this summer-you know, breezy light tees to keep cool during the hot summer day….so this pattern is perfect for that need. I sewed up a size medium and it fit perfectly-I love the dolman sleeves-it makes it so loose and comfy, but the band at the hem keeps it fitted. I used this navy striped fabric from Girl Charlee and it’s a great weight, and not see-through like I thought it might be!

ย I eeked out the size medium from one yard of fabric, and the band on the bottom is less wide as a result. (I left off the sleeve band) Which works out because I have the shortest torso in the world. (look me up in the record books ๐Ÿ˜‰ I also shortened the shirt pattern piece by 2″ I think, Abby shows you how to do in the pattern! The instructions were very well written with helpful tips. I’ve already made a color blocked version that I love and can’t wait to show ya…Thanks for the awesome pattern Abby!

Check out the other pattern tour participants!

  2. Just bought this pattern, and can’t wait to find the perfect fabric to use! Thanks for sharing the sizing and how you made it your own.

  3. Thanks for your review! I am also super short waisted so I was going to hold off on buying the pattern until someone short waisted reviewed it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Love the navy stripes! I made one but didn’t shorten it for my short body, oops! Luckily it was a practice run, I already have fabric for another! I love the sleeves on this pattern. Abby did a great job!
