Aurora Tee in Art Gallery Knit

I have been wearing the heck out of this recent make these days. It's the Aurora Tee* from Hey June Handmade*. It's a dolman sleeve top in a slouchy fit that is perfect for the fall weather we are having now. I made the basic version because this fabric had plenty of interest on its own, but the pattern also includes an option for cute inset panels at the sides. So, of course, I will have to make one of those someday too. 

I sewed it up in this lovely knit fabric from Art Gallery. This fabric is the perfect weight for tees and tops. I was drawn to the geometric design of this print. 

I found myself in between sizes on this one, so went with a size up. (I usually figure it's better to err on the size of too big, right?) But I think it feels a bit big, so next time I will size down and see how that goes. I know it's meant to be a slouchy fit, though, so maybe it's just me. What do you think?

Side note: The picture at the top was taken by my four year old. On the first try. I think she has some skills! My husband took most of the pictures and she kept wanting to do it and I said no. Once we were done getting the photos I wanted, I let her have a turn, and Boom. She takes one picture and now it's the cover photo. I am going to have to train her up and I might have a new photographer soon!
