A Review of the FREE Laundry Day Tee / Tunic PDF Pattern by Love Notions.
I haven't tried a Love Notions Pdf pattern before so when I saw that they had released the updated Laundry Tee as a FREE pattern I thought it was a great opportunity to give them a try. You have to be a member of their Facebook page to get the code which you apply at checkout.

Why do laundry when you can just whip up one of these cute and flattering tees in less time then it takes to dry a load of clothes?
The Laundry Day Tee comes with lots of options -
three neckline options: scoop, v-neck and cowl
five sleeve length options: tank, short, elbow, 3/4 and long
three length options: T-shirt, tunic and dress
tunic and dress lengths also have a high/low hem option
I chose to make a straight hemmed, long sleeved, scoop necked tunic. I chose to add 6cms to the length of the tunic because I like them to be a bit longer (but I didn't want to go to dress length). After measuring I also opted to use the full bust pattern piece.
The instructions are very detailed and include guides for lengthening, shortening, blending and even a nursing hack. I found the instructions easy to follow and so the Laundry Day Tee was very straightforward and quick to complete.
I'm really happy with the final fit. The full bust piece was especially well drafted as I didn't end up with the front hem higher than the back hem like I sometimes do.
I had enough fabric left over to make a removable cowl which I felt was a nice feature. I cut a piece of fabric 25cm x 85cm to achieve this.
Final Thoughts: This is a great pattern. I feel sure that I'll make many more as there are so many options!
