Montlake Tee

I've been spending some time the past week or so helping to test and tweak a new pattern release from Straight Stitch Designs, the Montlake Tee. I'm happy to report that the process was great and I love the final product!

Kimberly Payne, the designer behind Straight Stitch Designs, also lives in the Seattle area and names her patterns after different parts of the city. So fun! She was great to work with, really listening to all of our feedback and suggestions during the testing process. I won't bore you with my hideous muslins but check out this finished shirt. Not too bad, huh?

The Montlake tee is a great relaxed top with a flattering scoop neck and 4 different sleeve length options. I considered doing an FBA but decided to keep it simple by instead taking in the front waist a little more than the back. I have fabric washed and ready to cut out several more of these - this blue one is a Robert Kaufman Laguna jersey (cotton lycra) and is super comfy. I would recommend you get yourself this pattern if you're looking for a great basic to add to your wardrobe.
