Duck Butt Designs New Pattern Release: Mix It Up PhT

Hi, my name is Katie Wilson and I am the designer behind Duck Butt Designs. I am a stay at home mom of two little boys and in my spare time I love to make and design clothing. This is my first time participating in the Aspiring Designer Challenge with the Swhetty Betties. My idea for the Mix it Up PhT was to take aspects of a raglan and a traditional tee and mash them together. The shoulder accent had to be dropped down the side seam in order to showcase more of the accent fabric. The elbow patches were inspired by my husband, a professor at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln (who, it can be said, wears tee shirts to work most days rather than tweed)  The muscle tee adaptation is a sporty interpretation, and instructions for the modification are included with the pattern. Whether you like the PhD look or the Mr. T look, this pattern works for you!

The smaller sizes (12m-6) feature a one-piece shoulder accent while the larger sizes have a pieced shoulder with separate back and front necklines to allow for more of the fabric to show. The DBD hood add on fits this shirt nicely. Keep your eyes open for a free thumb hole cuff add on coming soon - for this and other DBD patterns! The pattern is available bundled, or you can purchase just the smaller sizes (12m-6) and larger sizes (7-12)
This chart shows the finished sizes of the shirt. Chest is measured in circumference; allow about 1.5" ease. Arm is measured from shoulder to wrist with elbow slightly bent.

I could not have done this without my fabulous, dedicated testers
