#isewlation2020 : Updating my tee collection : Part 4 : Cafe Tee
We’re back to tees today… and it’s another NAMEthelabel pattern. NAMEthelabel gifted the Cafe Tee to me during our second lockdown last year. In Melbourne, we’re currently in lockdown number 6, and to tell you the truth, they all just blur now. Big sigh…
The Cafe Tee is designed to be very oversized. I sewed a size 1 and performed my usual forward shoulder adjustment and removed 3″ (7.6cm) from the length to balance the boxiness on my frame.
This is a super speedy sew as there are only three pattern pieces…. front, back and neckband. Construction was on the overlocker and I secured my hems and the neckline seam allowance with a twin needle.
The fabric is a Stof knit which I purchased from work. This print has sold out, but there are plenty more to choose from.
I used the same ribbing as I did on my Tyra Tee. Speaking of the Tyra Tee, I lay the Cafe & Tyra tees on top of each other and they were identical widths and lengths (remembering I shortened the Cafe Tee) with the only noticeable difference being the sleeves. The Cafe Tees ‘grown on sleeves’ are narrower than the sleeves drafted for Tyra. In short… no wonder I love both these patterns!
