Bryant Fabric Choices

One of the elements of the new Bryant pattern that I didn’t expect is the wide range of looks you can get simply by the fabric you choose.  So today I wanted to show you how the pattern looks depending on your fabric choices.

Each of the tops I will be showing you was made with the exact same pattern pieces.  This will be even more apparent tomorrow when I share the tester roundup with you.  I actually have a few more tops that never got photographed, simply because the rain in Seattle the last few weeks has been insane.  I will make sure to add them to this blog post as soon as I photograph them.

Choosing Fabric for the Montlake Tee Sewing Pattern

Montlake Tee Fabric Options

Choosing fabric for a pattern is my favourite part of sewing.  I love walking the aisles of a fabric store feeling and stretching the fabrics to see how they will behave with the pattern.  When designing my new pattern, Montlake I realized very quickly that depending on the fabric chosen the final tee would have a different look.  The more stretch in a fabric leads to a deeper scoop neck and relaxed fit.  For those fabrics that have only slight stretch it is a more fitted tee.  All the looks are great, it’s just a matter of what kind of mood you are in when sewing up your Montlake.
