Laundry Day Tee | Love Notions Patterns

If you’re looking for a basic long sleeved knit top, the Laundry Day Tee from Love Notions is a perfect staple!

Laundry Day Tee | Sewing Pattern Review

The Laundry Day Tee has a scoop or V-neck, 3 sleeve lengths, and a t-shirt or tunic length top. The Love Notions blog has a free cowl neck add on, and I’ve even seen them modified into cute dresses. I predict some of those in my spring/summer wardrobe.

I made this my LDT in a size L and used coverstitching on the neck, sleeves, and hem. The fabric is from Girl Charlee and you may recognize it from this raglan.

I’ve been faking a loose flowy top in more fitted patterns, using my fitted to flowy top tutorial to adjust patterns. I wrote a tutorial to add gussets to t-shirts too!

The Laundry Day Tee does all the work for me though. It’s fitted through the bust and then tapers out slightly at the side seams for loose fit across my muffin area. If you look at the tester photos, it looks good on all shapes and sizes (not just the muffin-esque.)

I cut Love Notions patterns based on my full bust measurement, and so far I’ve they’ve always fit the first time, straight out of the box.

My only gripe is my design placement when I cut this top. I didn’t have an option to match my seams or sleeves, working with a small bit of leftover fabric. The largest part of the design landed across the bust, and the star/flower things landed most unfortunatly. Most people wouldn’t notice, but sewing folks do! I’m not sure I can get past it, but I layer a lot.

I’ll always need t-shirts, and a quick sew like the Laundry Day Tee is therapeutic. Lately though, I’m feeling ready to up my sewing skills. I ordered a bra kit from Bra-makers Supply. I can always come back to t-shirts in between fit disasters, right?! I’m pretty sure it will take lots of fails to get it just right.
