And even though I've been back in Ottawa for 11 years, I still consider Toronto home.
When the Rebecca Page FREE Toronto T-Shirt came up, I knew I NEEDED to create it!
...And then I did my best Toronto-esque photos possible.
Did I mention this pattern is free? You can't beat that!
And a few days after making these lovelies, I was walking from the office for coffee through the mall, and this is definitely THE CURRENT STYLE.
It's a loose fit t-shirt with a short bodice, perfect for layering in any weather!

For this particular t-shirt, I mixed up fabric makers - The Fab Clique had a super sale on knit fabrics, so I picked up the back fabric (white with butterflies) for a steal. It's a nice super flowy lightweight cotton lycra
And as usual, the front fabric is from Water Tower Textiles, a lightweight 2-way stretch bamboo fabric.
With the Toronto T-Shirt, LIGHTWEIGHT fabrics are best - otherwise, it will have a boxier look. I prefer the flowy look.

I paired my Toronto with my hacked Slim Fit Cargos and Strappy Cami.
I normally grade for my hips/waist - from a Medium Bust to XL Waist/Hips - with Rebecca Page Patterns, but with the loose fit of the shirt, I didn't grade, and kept this at a straight Medium.
I'm happy with the non-grading choice - it would of been WAY too flowy for my liking otherwise.
I didn't have to really pay attention to the instructions - this sew is really THAT easy!
The armcycle isn't tight and perfect for my larger biceps - so all around I'm happy with the comfort level.
The fabric for this top is a loose sweater knit, also from Water Tower Textiles. A great find as they clear out their winter fabric for summer flair.
And as you can see in the second picture above, the Toronto T-Shirt means getting bored of the Paparazzi .
The side view gives you an idea of what the top is like with a loose knit and no grading - I like it!
And the back drapes nicely over my big caboose.
So all in all, take a chance on this FREE Rebecca Page pattern, and be stylish like you're a true Torontonian!
