Take your T-shirt game to the next level with this
cleverly cut, easy-to-wear top. Designed for fluid
lightweight fabrics, choose a woven fabric like
rayon, chiffon, crinkle gauze, crepe, georgette,
or charmeuse, or try drape-y knits like silk(y)
jersey, ITY, rayon, linen, bamboo or modal.
Pull-on, asymmetric, relaxed-fit T has a scoop
neckline, and an angled hem finished with a
contrast band. The right side of the T has a tiny
cap sleeve, a shorter hemline, and is cut closer
to the body; the left side is cut wider and stitched
to give a ‘flange’ effect, with a grown-on short
sleeve and a longer hemline.
Change the look and level the sleeve lengths
with the optional additional right sleeve.
Right armhole and neckline can be finished with
knit rib, self or contrast binding, or fold-over elastic.
This great T layers beautifully over slim,
bootcut, or wide-leg pants, but also try it
over a slim or A-line midi skirt. You’ll love
this in your favorite prints or solid colors for
warm weather, as well as in beaded, sequined
or embroidered fabrics for a laid-back party look.
All sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26
will need around 2 yards or 184 cm fabric;
this will yield enough to cut the top with the
optional sleeve PLUS the hem band, all in one fabric.
If you’d like to cut the hem band in a contrast fabric,
allow an additional 1/4 yard or 45cm contrast fabric.
If you are using self knit or binding trim for the neckline
and armhole that’s already included in the fabric requirements;
if you want to use fold-over elastic allow 1 yard/92cm.
All fabric amounts are for 60" or 150cm wide fabric.
As always I love my new Hot Pattern.
I made 5 of these in quick succession. Great pattern, interesting construction.
