So you LOVE the loose a-line fit of the Free Spirit Tank, but would love it with sleeves?
Here is how you take the Layer Me Up Shirt to add sleeves 🙂
First… grab both patterns, some tracing paper and a pencil.
Trace your size of the Free Spirit Tank.
Place your Layer Me Up – SLEEVED BODICE piece matching on fold and at the top shoulder. Make sure you’re matching the front with the front 😉
Don’t worry about the neckline, although if you wanted it higher/tighter you could trace off the neckline from the Layer Me Up 🙂 Now just trace the armsyce from the Layer Me Up.
Repeat with the back pieces!
Now you can use any sleeve option from the Layer Me Up Shirt.
Here is mine I made for the fall!
Little guy wanted in 😉 Please excuse the no make up, mom hair, sports bra look!! It’s what I’m sporting most days though! 😉
I can’t wait to pair it with some leggings for the fall and winter! 🙂 It will be perfect right after baby girl comes!
This is a brilliant hack/ mash up of two patterns, and if you think about it, can be reversed to make a sleeveless layer me up shirt that fits like your free spirit tank.
The layer me up does include a sleeveless option already 🙂 But if you wanted to use the razorback you could!
The “sleeveless” LMU option you’re talking about is the tank, right? I’ve been trying to figure out how to make the LMU sleeveless but further out on the shoulder, but don’t know how to modify the armsyce.
Thanks for posting this!! Can’t wait to mash up some patterns of yours!
Which “back” pattern piece would I use? Or do I “mash” the back just like the front?
You mash exactly the same way for the back piece.
Just the info I was looking for this afternoon!
