You’re going to L-O-V-E these modern-pretty
T’s, designed for lighter weight drape-y knits
like rayon, modal, bamboo, ITY, silk(y) jersey,
cotton blends, viscose, or slubby linen jersey.
Loose-fit, pull-on T’s have a slouchy-shapely
silhouette, with a ‘U’ neckline and cut-on cap
sleeves; neckline is finished with self fabric
binding. Princess & angled underbust seams
make these easy to fit and fun to trim. Choose
any mix of hem & sleeve finish...keep it simple
with classic sleeve bands and a deep hem;
splice in some insert trim and/or lace; or add
some low-key flounces for extra prettiness.
These gorgeous T’s want to be made in your
favorite solid colors and prints, but matching
or contrast lace or trims along the seamlines
& through the hembands also work brilliantly.
Try a striped version; add appliques to the
front or the shoulders. Wear your T’s loose
or semi-tucked with cropped jeans or pants.
Full length/classic sleeveband version in all
sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26 will
need around 2 1/8 yards or 195 cm fabric.
Add another 1/4 yard/23cm for the sleeve ruffles;
add another 3/4 yard/69cm for the hem ruffle.
If you are making the insert hem & sleeveband
version, add another 1/4 yard/23cm fabric. If you
are trimming your seams, allow around 6 yards/550cm
of roughly ½”/1.25cm wide insert trim or similar;
add another 4 yards/365cm if you are trimming the top
& bottom edges of the hem & sleevebands.
For the insert sleeve & hembands, you need trim or
fabric 3”/7.5cm wide...you can piece together narrower
lace/ribbon to create a 3" wide strip, you’ll need a length
of around 2.5 x your hip measurement.
All fabric allowances are for 60” or 150cm wide fabrics.
If you liked the Shirt Tail T, you will love this top too. Plenty of variety to play with. Easy and interesting ! Good fit and on trend.
