The new old Mandy Boat Tee
I've been sewing Tessuti's Mandy Boat Tee for over four years  (and 20kgs ago). I made my first one in a class at Tessuti and the pattern was WAY too small for me then - one size does not fit all! Back then the teacher modified the pattern to fit me by maki...

(another) Ebony Tee
Now that I've mastered the Full Bicep Adjustment for this pattern I was REALLY keen to remake my favourite  #ebonyTee with a roomier sleeve and perhaps a bit more length so I could wear it with skinny pants and feel super comfortable. A quick dash to my loc...
