I am working on my muslin for the Riviera T-shirt from Hotpatterns. I have experienced first hand what everyone is talking about when they say "paper-sack" when referring to Hotpatterns. I was so happy with my pencil skirt that I purchased three more patterns from the company. This t-shirt pattern is basically a rectangle for the front and back with a strip of fabric for the sleeves. On the pictures above I have taken in 1 1/2 inches on each side seam... that's 6 inches of fabric total! I have not decided what to do with the neck line. As you can see from the above pictures, it's basically just a slit with no shape. I am sucked in to the stylish patterns of the company but I can see that this will take a lot of finagling to come close to the envelope picture. I'm wondering if it is even worth it. This shouldn't be the case for such high-priced patterns:(
I don't know... I may pick another pattern for my recently purchased rayon jersey fabrics.
