{Thumbs Up Tee} by OUSM Designs

I was super excited to test this pattern from OUSM Designs, a newer designer for PDF patterns. There are TONS of patterns out there for girls that are amazing, but it's a bit harder to find nearly as many for boys, so when I saw this I just KNEW that it would be a great addition to my two boys wardrobes!

The Thumbs Up Tee TOTALLY lived up to it's name...it's a seriously amazing pattern that is great for both boys and girls.

My favorite part has to be the thumb holes....check those out...aren't they just too fun?!?!

And just look at that 'V' detail on the sleeves! It was a little tricky to get it to sit flat on the first shirt that I made, but by the second one it was easy peasy. (sorry for the sleeve being out of focus...I am still working on my photography skills)

My little guys just loved this tee. It also is GREAT for embellishing with an applique...the possibilities are ENDLESS!

About the pattern:
  • Size 12 months to 12 years --gotta love those bigger sizes for the tweens!
  • Optional thumb holes on the sleeve cuffs --and for visual learners, check out her VIDEO showing how to assemble!
  • Only 15 pages of pattern pieces making it a quick sew and easy on the ink ;)
  • Detailed instructions with beautiful illustrations of each step.
  • TONS of inspiration photos from all the testers!!!
  • I would consider this an intermediate beginner --the 'V' detail and thumb holes were a little tricky...even being an advanced sewer I learned some new tricks!!!

Overall thoughts:

It was a quick, easy and fun pattern to see come together! Endless possibilities. Very versatile. One thing that I do want to note is that this is definitely a slim fitting tee, making it easy to dress up or down!

  1. Thanks for being a great tester, Courtney! We sure did enjoy the group and seeing all of the creative ways our shirt was embellished and sewn up. We are happy your little guys enjoy wearing it as much as we enjoyed working on it.

  2. Your welcome! I really had a lot of fun with it
