A few years ago it seemed like every other fabric had some type of fox print. And I remember there being an elephant trend at some point as well. But lately it seems like all I see are pandas. I'm not sure if it's due to the recent influence of Japanese prints, or if pandas really are just that popular and I was unaware of it until now :) Which is entirely possible since I pay no attention whatsoever to trends ... honestly, I'm pretty oblivious, and I just tend to sew (and buy) what I like at the moment!
I started with the raglan t-shirt pattern (No.9 Brave Fireman) from Ottobre 3/2013 in the 92 width and 104 length. I scooped the neck slightly and created a cap sleeve pattern. I'm sure there is a pattern that is much closer to what I wanted in one of my other Ottobre magazines, but this happened to be the magazine I was using at the moment and the changes took me less time than looking through the other issues ;)
I love this tee! I already have another one cut out from a sprinkles print knit that Mae is so excited about :) So is Gracie, so I might have to make her a sprinkles shirt too!
The inside of this one looks fine except for the change in bobbin thread half way through topstitching the neck binding. I had the pink thread in the bobbin from finishing the hem and ran out half way though the neck binding, but I was too lazy to wind a new bobbin with pink so I finished with a navy blue bobbin that I had laying around. Talk about lazy ;)
