Extraordinary Girl Women2

A few weeks back I shared some fun girls’ t-shirts as part of a pattern tour, and mentioned that there was also a women’s version that I was going to sew. Several of you asked to see this version as well, and I am delivering today.

While I really like the girls’ pattern, I LOVE having one of my own. I seriously love envelope-style shirts, and you just can’t find them very often for women so the Extraordinary Girl for Women is amazing (affiliate).

This is the women's version of the Extraordinary Girl Tee and it's amazing!

I sewed this one with some Girl Charlee striped knit and a jersey knit sheet I got last year (it’s the same sheet I made this maternity dress from actually). I love the combination because it’s soft and mustard is a color I wear often.

This is the women's version of the Extraordinary Girl Tee and it's amazing!I love that the shoulders provide enough coverage that I don’t have to constantly check for showing bra straps (because that’s annoying) and the detail is what sells me on this shirt.

I actually made the sleeves elbow length for this version because that’s all the stripe fabric I had–and I really like it! The pattern includes long and 3/4 sleeves, both of which I really like too. I’m a 3/4 sleeve girl year round actually. It sews up pretty quickly and it’s such a fun shirt with the subtle hi-low hem and (of course) the fabulous shoulder detail.

This is the women's version of the Extraordinary Girl Tee and it's amazing!

Now I just want to make several more Extraordinary Girl tees–I often pull it straight out of the dryer and put it on so it hasn’t had much drawer time which means I obviously need to make more.

So cute Lisa! I LOVE 3/4 sleeve. It makes my arm look so much thinner in pictures. (o:

You did such an excellent job! It’s easy to see that this is a really high quality piece! I’ve never actually don’t any sewing with knits…they tend to intimidate me a bit.

I click on the link for Extraordinary T for Woman, but end up with the pattern for girls till age 14. Where can I find woman sizes?
