Angela Wolf's Ruched T-Shirt is magical. It's a dream come true for a tall woman like me. The body of the shirt is long. The sleeves are LONG! You have to ruche both of them to make them manageable, even for me.
Unlike other ruched t-shirts I have made, which use clear elastic along the ruching, Angela reinforces the ruching on her t-shirt with straight twill tape. The ruches hold their shape beautifully.
I was lucky enough to take a full-day class from Angela at the American Sewing Expo this fall. She and her mom helped 25 of us find our sizes and sew up our tees. I made a large, grading out to an extra-large in the bust.
During the class, I made a gray ponte version with a twisted collar. My second version is this bright pink version with a cowl collar. Both of them are enjoying frequent wear.
Angela's ruched t-shirt is beautifully drafted, with many collar options. You will see many more versions on this blog. :)
