A hooded ADV tee (a pattern by Sofilantjes and a little twist by me)

Today it's my turn on the ADV tee pattern blogtour and I can't wait to share what I made! I'm really glad Anne asked me to join this tour. The Omni Tempore sweater has been made several times over here and this tee pattern with a V neck is going to be another bestseller!

You can add a pocket and make it short or long sleeved. As in all Anne's patterns you can just print the sizes you need and this time she even added a measurements table to the pattern pieces.

I added a little twist to the pattern and instead of the V neck I made the pattern hooded. It was an easy moderation, there was no need to redraw the neckline and I made sure the hoodparts would overlap by approximately a centimeter in front. To keep the idea of the V the hood edges are finished with a contrasting jersey biastape.

The tutorial advises to use a jersey knit but I choose on a sweater version (all fabrics came from my favourite online jersey shop Joyfits) and went up one size in width. Sizing up when using thicker fabric is a must, the shirt is designed to be well fitted, a look I really like for my boys!
