I'm always on the look out for a great T-shirt and I must have 1400 t-shirt patterns. I was looking through them the other night and thought it might be fun to make M6244. I thought view B, the one with the diagonal hemline, would be interesting and out-of-the box for me. But I didn't want a sleeveless version. So I made up view B with long sleeves.
This pattern is sized S-M-L-Xlg. I usually make up a large but I wound up taking it in majorly under the arms - 2 inches on each side. So I probably could have gotten away with a medium. Woohoo Vanity sizing! LOL. But I have to tell you I really like this pattern. Next time I'll make with 3/4 sleeves. I have several cotton knits and a couple of jersey knits I think would look great in. Oh...I almost forgot this tee is seriously low necked. I raised the front by 2 inches and the back by 1 1/2 inches. So be aware. LOL. A couple more changes I made were to use my coverstitch machine on the hem and to add a bias cut band around the neckline. This added a little and didn't feel quite so bare.
