1. I finished my Mandy Boat Tee last weekend, and it’s interesting to seehow you went about it. I’m rather short so I had to shorten it a bit. And the 3/4 sleeves were about full sleeve length for me. I used size 1, and my fabric is very loosely knit and slouchy so that fits pretty nicely. I’m planning to make another one from jersey so I’ll use your tips for its sizing!

      It’s definitely going to be different for everyone, and I’m no pattern alteration expert, but I hope you found something in the post that might be helpful. 🙂 Thank you, Karin!

    HI Karin,

    I’m about to cut out and ever version i have seen is a bit too tight around the upper arm. I didn’t quite understand your alteration – when you say for the sleeve you started at the top and traced the top of the shoulder to the size 2 and then graded to the size 4 in the sleeve side seam, do you mean it was a size 2 at the shoulder seam then got wider further down the arm? I feel like the seam between the shoulder and arm is where it is quite tight?

    It’s been a while, so only if you remember 🙂

      So sorry this is a bit late, Kristy, but I was referring to the sleeve piece because it was okay for me in the shoulder, but way too tight around the arms. If it’s too tight at the top where the sleeve meets the shoulder, you may want to size up or just make the armscye bigger and adjust the sleeve piece. I hope you were able to get it right for you!
