Whimsy Couture Banded Knit Tee - Pattern Review

I was recently contacted by Whimsy Couture to test a new Banded Knit Tee pattern. I'm pretty new to (and intimidated by) knits but I love a good challenge so I said yes. I'm so excited that I agreed because this was such a quick and easy sew and I love the results. It's my first successful knit creation and my oldest is already asking for one of her own. That's definitely a win in my book. This pattern also goes up to a size 12 so it will fit both my girls for a few more years. That is a HUGE plus in my book.

I opted to serge the entire shirt to make it a little quicker and easier on myself, but the directions specifically say that it is meant to be sewn without a serger so don't shy away from this adorable pattern if you don't have one.

My little Abby is pretty long and lean so the size 4 test pattern fit her perfectly, but the pattern has since been lengthened and widened to make for a better all around fit for everyone.

* I will update with the fit of the released pattern when I make one up for my oldest*
As you can see from my pictures Abby had a lot of Sass that day and was determined to pose how she wanted. Gotta love 3 year olds.

Have you sewn out of your comfort zone lately? Was it as scary as you thought it would be?

  1. Your girls are so adorable. I hope you do make a bigger one for your oldest. This turned out adorable. Abby is quite the sassy little sweet. There are so many fun knit patterns...I want to make one for myself...though, I don't think I could squeeze into a 12 :)

    1. I was thinking the same thing. Yesterday I found a pattern that is a very similar top for women. I'm definitely giving it a try soon.
