I made the short sleeved version. (Cold weather is no longer welcome here.) This pattern goes hard all year, with several variations including tunic option, thumb-hole sleeves and a cowl neck.

The thumb hole feature gets all the attention, because we love them. But the stand out detail for me is the cool sleeve contrast. It’s a basic that I’ll wear a lot, but doesn’t feel like another plain tee.

Included in the pattern is an excellent guide for blending sizes. The instructions are well written, and Rachel even made a video tutorial for the thumb hole cuffs.

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    I did not notice the sleeve design until I saw your top! Agree, they are the stand out details. Your top is cute and the color makes me think of spring :)
