Raindrop Tee & giveaway

Gracious Threads has a new pattern - the Raindrop Tee! I was able to test the pattern for Jess.

The first one I did is in Riley Blake's jersey (95% cotton, 5% spandex). This fabric sews up like a dream! It has great recovery and drape.

Styled with her Titchy Threads Skinny Jeans, which finally fit her (though still not really skinny). The teeny pocket is a fun detail that my sweetie loves!

The Raindrop Tee has great, clear instructions for applying the neck binding - I still managed to mess it up a bit. After washing, the neckline binding puckered up a bit. I guess I should have used a little more length there. It's still wearable though.

Doesn't it have the prettiest profile? The hi-lo hem is just perfect. I chose to do the 3/4 length sleeves. The pattern also comes with a short sleeve option.

This one is sweatshirt fleece. It actually has an interesting story: My family moved out of province when my younger sisters were toddlers. A lady in the community had cut out sweaters for them and could not finish them before we left. She gave the cut pieces to my mom. They ended up sitting on the shelf the last - oh - 15 years? when my mom gave the pieces to me. They were just big enough for me to re-cut into a Raindrop Tee for my daughter!

Loving the pocket again! She chose the owl print for the pocket. I cut a lining for the pocket out of white cotton so it would be sturdier and not see-through.

Thinking this one will be perfect for fall with the heavier fabric and elbow-length sleeves.

Jess is giving away a copy of the pdf print at home pattern for the Raindrop Tee! It's also available on Etsy and Craftsy.
