I had the privilege to test another sewing pattern for Elke Puls. She always designs beautiful patterns which I really like. The Tunika Elle but also the Chobe bag and Bethoiua Top are some great examples of her beautiful designs. This time knotenshirt Shirt Mahé Elle Puls. The name of the shirt comes from the largest island in the Seychelles archipelago, in the Indian Ocean off East Africa.

knotenshirt Shirt Mahé Elle Puls – the pattern

Shirt Mahé pattern comes with a few stylish options. You can choose for a short sleeved version or one with cut-out shoulder so you have lots of mix match options. The pattern comes in A4 sizes and layered option so you can print only the size you wish. Seam allowances are included just like the notches. My knowledge of German has been better so I used this time the illustrations to sew my Shirt Mahé together.

knotenshirt Shirt Mahé Elle Puls – my version

Shirt Mahé is designed to have a free falling look so I decided to sew size 38 according to the size table and some pattern measurements. I made my version using a light weighted jersey (± 200 gram/m²) and made a long sleeved version with closed shoulder seams. The knotenshirt Shirt Mahé Elle Puls is easy to make. The small tucks and the knot construction are the two details that ask for some attention. It’s almost like sewing a T-shirt together.  A version with the cut-out shoulder will also ask for some attention and precision.
