Those of you who follow the Me-Made-May 2013 Flickr Pool may have seen this already, but I thought it did deserve a post of its own as well.
It is a new t-shirt in marl grey rib knit.
I used the "flip turn for a draped effect" design from Pattern Magic 2. Although it doesn't get a big picture in the book, it is probably one of its most popular designs. Which is why I hesitated about making it at first. But it's also one of the most wearable designs and ideal for a fabric like rib knit which looks the same on both sides (for the un-Pattern Magic-initiated: in this particular kind of twist, one piece is folded over so the wrong side of the fabric ends up on the outside of the garment).
As usual, I used my own knit sloper instead of the Bunka block. I also wanted to make sure my version would be clearly asymmetrical, not hesitantly so, like it seems in the book. And I decided to bind the neckline by serging on a strip of fabric. To do this, I sewed the shoulder seams first, then applied the neck band and only then I proceded to assemble the front with the flip turn.
I think it makes for a nice top which I will wear a lot.
