Yellow Polka Dot Seafarer Tee

This past Saturday evening I sewed up some things for myself including this yellow polka dot seafarer by Sew Much Ado. I tested this pattern for the talented Abby awhile back. It's such a great little pattern with lots of variety, including adding cuff sleeves or a waist band or adding a neck band, pocket, whatever you want!
Here's the other version of this top I made with a cute monogrammed pocket!

I've had this yellow lycra polka dot fabric in my stash awhile and honestly, I should have sized up to take into account how it hugs, but I didn't, so now I will probably wear this with work out pants as a work out tee.
 Awkward back shot... bahaha!
This time I did add sleeve cuffs, extended the hem lengthwise several inches to cover the bum, curved the hem both in front and in back, and added the neck band to make it more t-shirt like. It was a quick sew and a fun sew! Thanks for letting me model it for you! I'm trying to push myself to sew a little more and make time for myself and this creative outlet! Also, great props to my 4 year old for taking the photos hahaha! Go Cai!  :)
