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.
I have a lot of experience sewing with knits so this pattern worked well for me, but I found the order of construction unlike I would have expected. Also, the markings for the sleeves (which are not very visible by the pattern shape) were hard to understand. I finally just took a guess to see where they were. Had to keep consulting the paper pattern a lot even after cutting out with marks included. The pattern is a really cute shape and I like the design lines a lot. I will make it again.
This Tee fit BEAUTIFULLY, right out of the envelop! I love the fit and it is SO FUN! I'm preparing my 2nd right now. Love it!
