|HotPatterns Fast & Fabulous Blouse-Back Tee|
Trudy has never done a sewalong before for one of her patterns, but she's doing one for this one. On Facebook, she said that she was inspired by her recent lunch with Renee of Miss Celie's Pants and wants to get people sewing this pattern and not just stashing it.
If you've been tempted to give HotPatterns a try before but have been hesitant for whatever reason, this is a great pattern to start with:
- The Fast & Fabulous line (which includes this pattern) has a lower price point than other HotPatterns and is only $9.95.
- With the scoop neck in the front and the draping in the back, I think that this is a style that will work well on most figures. (And honestly, that's a big part of what I love about HotPatterns--Trudy rarely releases a style where I look at it and think "Wow, you have to be 5'10" and 120 lbs to wear that!")
- The sewalong! You'll get the camaraderie and inspiration of sewing along with others. And if you've been hesitant about HotPatterns' minimalist instructions in the past (and to be fair, the F&F line does tend to have more detailed instructions), you'll be able to get help from Trudy and other HotPatternistas as you go.
