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!"

Here are the changes for the pattern Back:

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!
