I get so excited about new patterns. 😊 One of my favorite designers is releasing TWO new patterns together this month, and I'm thrilled to share about them!

The first new release- the BESTIES TEE
This tee is so fun, with quite a few options! You can choose whether you like the flared tee or the banded tee. The flared tee features a slightly flared silhouette with three length options (cropped, regular, or long).
The banded option also has a slightly flared silhouette gathered into a waistband. It also has a couple of lengths - for the hemband to sit on the waist or the hips.
Both versions can be made with several necklines- three different rounded necklines, a v neckline, or a squared neckline. They both have several options for sleeve lengths or two choices for sleeveless (a wide sleeveless or a cutaway sleeveless).
The pattern is drafted for knit fabrics. Both of my tops went together very easily and quickly. The banded version took slightly longer, just because of gathering the fabric into the waistband.
My favorite of the two is the banded version. My hip measurement is between the 10 and 12, and for the flared version, I sewed the size 10. I ended up choosing to size up 1 in the hips when I made the banded version. I really like it. When I make the flared version again, I'll also use the size 12 I think. I love the banded version because I don't have much in this style already. It is different from most of the tops hanging in my closet. I think it looks great with skinny jeans, but would also look amazing with a pencil skirt or dress slacks.
The second top that is releasing is this great flounce tank!
It also has a flared silhouette, but has a flounce hemline. It is like a circle skirt - no gathers! It has three lengths - cropped, hip length, or long length. It has two neckline options OR a hood! There are two sleeveless options - the wide sleeveless or the cutaway halter style sleeveless.
It is also designed for knit fabrics, and was a very quick sew as well!
I used Double Brushed poly fabric for this tank as well.
As I mentioned, two of my tops were made using double brushed poly fabric. I cannot remember where the floral came from! The solid DBP I used for the tank came from Amelia Lane Designs.
The rayon spandex print I used for the banded tee was also from Amelia Lane Designs.
I am always able to get a great selection for fabrics from them! They have good prices, stock a very nice variety, and are very speedy in filling orders! 😃
