A Review of the FREE Laundry Day Tee PDF Pattern by Love Notions.
I pretty much live in shorts and tank tops this time of year here in Cyprus. I've made two Curved Hem Pocket Tanks by Ellie & Mac Patterns recently which I wear constantly and after purchasing some pink knit fabric thought I'd make another. I then remembered another FREE pattern that has a really great fit - The Laundry Day Tee!

I previously made The Laundry Day Tee in January this year and wore it a lot (see my blog post here) - I made a Long Sleeved, Scoop Neck Tunic version which kept me very warm in the cooler months. However, the pattern has many many options so this time I chose to make a Sleeveless, Scoop Neck, Tee Version.
This Laundry Day Tee ended up being a very quick make as I already had the pattern printed out - I just had to trace off the sleeveless arm hole. The pattern comes with a full bust pattern piece which gives a great fit and I love the shaping of the tank - it drapes down from the bust with a bit of a swing shape rather than clinging to your body.
This fabric is a very lightweight knit with quite an open weave so I applied clear elastic to the shoulder seams before serging to add some reinforcement. I used wash-away-tape to keep the clear elastic in place before serging.
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 therefore the Laundry Day Tee was very straightforward and quick to complete.
Final Thoughts: This is a super pattern - a must have!
