I finally made my very own Tonic Tee by SBCC Patterns! I got my hands on one of Betsy's patterns nearly 4 years ago, the Cosmo Maxi Skirt. I love that Betsy designs specifically for petites. (She explains how to lengthen her patterns if you are of average or above average height.)
I decided to use this pattern because I decided my TNT t-shirt pattern wasn't really working for me and I was ready to try something new, and hopefully get a better fit.
The Tonic Tee is a free PDF pattern available on the SBCC website. The only change I made to the pattern was to bring the neckline up slightly in the front. I used a double brushed poly knit from Allielane in Abbyville. (I recently made my mom a blouse with the same fabric...but I have even more red roses in my stash!)
I rarely find a pattern I don't have to alter extensively. I am really happy with the fit of this garment. Other than the bottom hem being slightly too short (like only 1/2") for my liking, this top fits wonderfully! I did cut the neckband too long so it gapes a bit. However, I'm the only one who will notice this, so I probably won't change it.
This is Dede the bulldog, my gordita! We've had her for 2 years and she is my buddy!
