I decided it was time to try out a new tee. I have been having so much success with New Look 6735 that it's hard to switch over to something untried. I wanted to try this particular pattern because I thought the raglan sleeve would be a good opportunity to use up some scraps from previous tees, so technically this tee is a freebee. My final verdict? Meh.
I think the gathers in the front should be lower - centered over the bustline instead of running to the neckline. IF I were to make it again I may just leave those out entirely and redraft the neckline.
Pattern Review. I tried to compensate by sewing a vee into the underarm seam similar to the dart at the neckline. This resulted in a wierd bulge underneath that remains hidden as long as I don't raise my arms for anything. Sigh. On her version my mom tried to compensate by adjusting the top seam of the sleave. The top looks better but it still left a lot of gapiness at the underarm (sorry Mom!).
