Carol Scott attended Sew Kansas this summer and wore a really cute variation of the eTee that resulted from her running out of fabric! We asked her to share her process.
"I was a Fashion Design professor for 26 years and taught patternmaking, clothing construction, tailoring, design and pattern grading. Since retiring 9 years ago, I still teach knitwear design and machine knitting at seminars and for groups nationwide. Even in retirement, I still can't find the time to sew and knit as much as I'd like to!"

When she didn't have enough fabric to cut the eTee sleeves, Carol had to get creative. She modified the pattern to have a cap sleeve and more of a scoop neck. Here are her changes for the pattern Front:

Here are the changes for the pattern Back:
To make the cap sleeve shape:
To complete the garment, Carol serged the sleeve hems and turned them back with a straight stitch hem. She finished the neck with a neck band per the instructions, but the new neck measurements are bigger, so be sure to cut a longer band.
We love it! Thanks for sharing your problem-solving idea for smaller yardage, Carol!
Very cute on you! How deep is your sleeve hem? With the serging & the hem, there does not seem to be much room with only 1" total at the underarm.
