I love the Inari Tee's boxy, cropped style! This pattern is one I've been wanting to try out, so when we received this amazing Crowded Faces lawn...it was time. Inari's simple construction is the perfect choice for this black and white print.
Right off the bat, I was sure I needed to make a few adjustments to the pattern. The dartless pattern looks fantastic up to a certain cup size, but adding a dart would be more flattering for my larger bust size, allowing for a better fit in the shoulders. I decided to do a full bust adjustment (FBA) and also lengthen the pattern two inches for my longer torso.

Once my adjustments were made, this top came together in a flash! Now that I have my own custom pattern sorted, I can't wait to make more Inari Tees.
I got the best surprise when I went to work and realized Lauren also made a Crowded Faces Inari Tee! Twinari Tee powers activate!
First of all, Twin tees are the best tees!
Second, I can’t stop making the Inari pattern! If you follow along with our blog, then you probably saw the Ikat Inari Dress I made a few weeks back. That wasn’t even close to my first Inari though. This is my second shirt in addition to the dress! I love how versatile this pattern is. Somehow it looks like a completely different shirt in each new fabric I use. This time around I added 3” of length just to make it a little more ‘top’ than ‘crop’.
I was so excited to see Amber's matching shirt when she brought it to work! #squadgoals achieved
