#isewlation2020 : Updating my tee collection : Part 7 – Glacial Tee


Confession time.  I’ve sewed a lot in the last 18 month.  Mulitple lockdowns had me making, making, making.  Sharon and I have done our upmost to photograph all the things I sewed for myself (so I could blog them), but one item slipped through the cracks.  This item slipped through the cracks.  And the funny thing is that of ALL this things I’ve sewn, this one has had the most wear.  Let’s call it the forgotten wardrobe workhorse.


I was actually wearing my Pattern Fantastique Glacial Tee/Skivvy when I photographed my Molly Jacket.  I told you I wear it all the time.  I hope you can get enough of a sense of the pattern from these ‘accidental’ photos of this make… just try and focus on the red!


The neckline is high, round and perfect for keeping your warm.  I only add stay tape to the back neckline and shoulders when I know a knit neckline won’t fit over my head without stretching.  I learnt this lesson the hard way many years ago.


The armscye on this pattern are beautifully shaped and I think this is what sets this pattern apart from it’s peers.


The pattern comes in three lengths.  This is the longer length (the middle length available) which I have expertly hidden by my tucking.


There are also three sleeves lengths.  Bracelet is perfect on me.  I’ve no declared this to be my go-to pattern for long sleeve tees.  What’s yours?
