I love colour blocking, I think everybody knows that by now. And I love bold colour combinations. This t-shirt is the perfect example of that. I got to know this pattern through her of course (Inspinration). You can see she also made two bold versions of this pattern.
It is a German pattern, BeeStyle, with great colour blocking potential. It has many different options: different hoods, a collar, two different types of pockets (she of course added a pocket), a regular and a tunic length and you can add a thumbhole cuffs. It is the perfect pattern for a sweater but can also be used to sew a t-shirt. Although the instructions are in German every step is accompanied with a photo and since I am a visual person, I mainly needed the photos to sew the t-shirt. I did not have any problems with assembling the pattern.
Our girl loves thumbhole cuffs ever since I sewed this t-shirt. So I added the option to this shirt. I love the way these thumbholes are made, it looked a bit complicated at first, but when I just followed the instructions, all went well. The pattern is available in European sizes 74 (which is for height 74 cm, which is in US sizing 9-12M) until 170 (for 170 cm height, which in US sizing is >14Y).
