I just can't get enough Papercut Patterns! You're probably bored silly of my Ensis Tee's and Coppelia Cardigans. I decided I'd post about the Ensis Tee again as this version turned out so dramatically different to my first.
This time I made variation 2 (curved hem) but added the sleeve cuffs from variation one. Again I cut a straight XS with no changes to the pattern and once again it sewed up like a dream on my overlocker. The fabric I used was the left over pink lightweight merino from my wrap coppelia cardy and matching blue merino. This fabric is almost as stretchy (imo) as what I used for my first Ensis Tee. However the fabric I used for the first is thinly ribbed, heavier weight and is much slouchier (technical term), it kind of wants to stretch just due to its own weight. While the pink and blue lightweight merino has great recovery.
It might be difficult to see but my first Ensis Tee fits like a jumper should, with plenty of room for layers underneath. While my new Ensis fits much more like a long sleeve Tee. Something I would wear as a layer rather than an outer garment.
I love this version just as much as my first, but think it's amazing that a single pattern with just a change in fabric can create two garments which form very different parts of my wardrobe.
Thanks very much to Jess for taking some quick photos during a work break.
