Pattern Test- Green Tee Expanded Sizing, Greenstyle Creations

I recently had the opportunity to be a part of the pattern testing team for the expanded sizing of the Greenstyle Creations Green Tee. The Green Tee is a basic semi-fitted T-shirt with Scoop Neck and V-Neck options in either a short or long sleeve. The new expanded sizing gives a wide variety of sizes from B-M (from 30″ in the Bust up to 61″). This pattern is FREE if you join the Greenstyle Creations Facebook Group.

This pattern is a great beginner pattern. It is so easy to make! Personally I prefer a more fitted shirt than this, but all I would need to do to fix that is size down. I’m pretty new to sewing stripes, I’ve only done a couple things with liner patterns. I was so happy with my stripe matching on this shirt though! I didn’t even try to match the stripes when I was cutting it out! I totally got lucky! I was careful as I was pinning and sewing it to make sure that my stripes stayed lined up though. I was thrilled when I turned it right side out and saw that it actually worked!

The other new feature of this pattern is that it now includes a projector file. I am so excited about this and it is making me want to run out and buy a projector! What is a projector file you may ask? I don’t know about you, but my least favourite part of PDF patterns is having to print out a stack of letter sized papers, use up lots of expensive printer ink, then painstakingly tape all of these pages together making sure that they line up properly (which can be impossible if your printer pulled a few pages through on a slight angle) then cut the pattern out. The projector files are a solution to this problem. You can use them one of two ways. If you need to make lots of adjustments to your patterns (like a full bust adjustment for example) you can use the projector to project the pattern onto a large sheet of paper and trace the pattern lines onto the paper and make your adjustments as needed. OR you can mount the projector to the ceiling over your cutting table and project the pattern DIRECTLY ONTO THE FABRIC!!!! How much of a time saver would that be?! I am so excited to try this! Now I just need to talk my dad into letting me borrow his projector…
