Remnants X-Tee for myself - McCall's 7538
I really loved the feel of this fabric on my cousin dress and the shape of the V neck so I was so so happy to find that I have enough fabric and border print left to make a tee as well. I wanted to add some twist but I had no better idea except switch the longer stripe on the other side. I should have put the lighter stripes upper as well but only realized I could have done that when I decided to time each of the diagonal band 1-2 cm to have it end with the last stripe rather then including of the of the other print as I did for the dress. That was a good decision - I only lost a bit of length like that; the rest of the shape seemed to be just fine.
I just have to say it again I love the many choices that this pattern offers and they are all so lovely!!!
I think this might just become my favorite tee pattern - the only competition for it being the V bloced Lekala 4511.
