4.0 out of 5 stars Book great! Patterns not so., 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Great British Sewing Bee: Sew Your Own Wardrobe (Hardcover)
My copy arrived yesterday and full of excitement I set forth and made the simple t shirt. Two hours later finished , great, but when I tried it on the neckline was massive!The rest if the garment was a good size for me but not the neckline. The picture shows quite a tight neck but definitely not when made.I had used cotton and tape around the neck so it had not stretched.Be warned there may be considerable alterations to be made. Certainly to this pattern.
The book is interesting with good hints and tips.
My verdict, the pattern I have tried so far 2 the book 5 ,an overall rating of 4.

Are you sure you've reviewed the correct book?. I can find one pattern for a t-shirt, but how anyone can think that this is a tight neckline is beyond me. Quite clearly the picture of the finished garment shows a very big neckline.......as does the pattern.

The initial poster complained of the t-shirt neck being too big, not too tight.

Yes, it was too big in the end but the initial review said it LOOKED tight, which it doesn't in the book.
