This is my fifth version of the Brigitte tee. I made the size 14 but think I might go down to the 12 if I make it again.

The pattern features a high boat neckline which I re-drafted to lower the front. On this version I dropped the centre front by approx. 1″ and then graded back to the shoulders. The high neckline does mean it isn’t really a top you can wear underneath things as the neckline always shows. I also lengthened the bodice by 1″ to allow me to turn under a deeper hem.

I think the Tessuti patterns are really great value for money. They aren’t fancily packaged but that means you get great designs at an affordable price.

This is a quick tee to sew as it only has 3 pattern pieces. The neckline is easy enough to re-draft to you preference and you get 4 different sleeve options. More on my blog >> http://holmsown.co.uk/brigitte-top-in-flowered-engrams/
