A Stitcher's Wardrobe: Long Sleeved Tee

This week, a first draft of a long sleeved raglan tee, cut from woven paisley cotton.  

The fit is almost there -- I will raise the back neck next time for a little more coverage.  There are small darts at the shoulder for a proper fit, and bust darts as well. 

The back hemline is two inches longer than the front, a handy feature when sitting.

The sleeves are just as I like them, roomy in the underarm and girth, and perfect for rolling up.

This basic tee beckons decorative stitch-work or printing or color-blocking. My wheels are turning ... and yours?

my wheels locked & came to a screeching hault when the arm holes on my newly sewn shift (that word, circa - congealed salad) were too baggy. grrrr. saved by words of wisdom from Ellen, wheels are turning again onto tweaking & DRAFT two of shift.
