Sofilantjes Patterns just released a new pattern, the ADV tee, suitable for boys and girls. I was lucky to be one of the testers.

The pattern has two neckline options, the simple v-neck (seen in the picture) or a button closure on the side of the front yoke. This last option, is perfect to play with colour or prints. There’s also a short sleeve option, so come summer, I’ll be making a few more of these.ADVtee-02I had never made a v-neck before, but it seemed like the perfect pattern to start. The construction is really simple and easy to understand, thanks to the instructions.

I up-cycled two old t-shirts. One of them, had a cute print of Hobbes in the front, but I thought it would be more fun (and unexpected…) to use it in the sleeve.

There are no cuffs or waistband, which makes this a quick and easy sew! (that’s all we want, right?)ADVtee-03You can find the ADV Tee pattern here. Don’t miss it!

And now I leave you with my favourite Calvin and Hobbes quote.intelligent-quotes-about-life-calvin-and-hobbes-live-by-quotes-42324

    I love your version! I would never have thought to put a print like that on the sleeve — so awesome! And I’m pretty daunted by V-necks, but I’m really tempted to try this. “Simple” is the key word! 😉
