Wowzer, I've got something special to share with you today!! The simplest make in the softest fabric, I'm going to share how to make and where to buy!

Its even a free pattern so even better for your wallet!!

Mandy Boat Tee Pattern – Tessuti Fabrics - Online Fabric Store (

So comfy and soft, perfect for longing around at home in my jeans and cosy card!!

I always find this stage so exciting, so many options to make a unique garment!!

The fabric is so soft and drapey, its wool jersey from

Minerva Core Range Isabella Wool Jersey Stretch Knit Fabric | 1015406 | Minerva

Lets get cracking!!

Firstly we turn over the neckline and stitch it down, I've used a twin needle on my sewing machine here and you can see the inside edge, after this we sew the front to the back at the shoulders!!

Now we're going to attach each of the sleeves at the shoulder, there are only 4 pattern pieces and once you've stitched the sleeves on at the shoulder here, its all in one piece!!

Nearly done now!!

So we're nearly there!! Lets whiz that sewing machine down the side seams, all the way from the wrist up the arm and all the way down to the hem!!

Once you have this its just simple to hem the sleeves and the hem at the bottom of the top and its time to try that bad boy on!!

Here I've styled it with some smart trousers and I'm ready for work or out with friends!

Its so soft and drapey, I could wear this all day!!

Or what about this casual look, Jeans and a cosy Cardi, perfect for lounging around or on a chilly evening!!
