This is the classic paper pattern version;
if you'd prefer the print-at-home version
in sizes Arch E, A0, A4 & letter sizes
We love these modern versions of the
classic V-neck T, designed for light to
medium-weight knit fabrics with a little
drape like interlock, silk(y) jersey, modal,
rayon or bamboo knit fabrics. You can
also use light and fluid sweater knits.
Straight-cut, semi-fitted pull-on T’s have
a bound ‘V’ neckline with a center front
seam. Cut your T with a front tie at the
hem, make it with a deep faced hem,
or a separate hem-band; side slits are
optional. Choose between a cap, 3/4
or full length sleeve, all finished with
doubled self fabric or rib knit bands.
Wear the knotted hem version over
jeans, pants or a slim skirt; the deep
hem and deep hem-band versions look
great worn loose or tucked into a skirt
or pant waistband. Sleeve length options
make these all-year wardrobe essentials,
and they make gorgeous P.J. tops too...
You can also use a drape-y knit like bamboo,
linen or rayon knits, silk(y) jersey, even a
fluid but firm lightweight sweater knit.

I have made two "trials" from my stash. Love them both and have more in the planning stages. I sometimes find their tops a bit big but these fit fine. I will make the tie version about half an inch shorter next time. What I like best about them is that they are different without seeming "forced"I
I have made two versions of this top... one with the banded hem and sleeves and the second with the tie front.
Fast, Fabulous and Flattering! The straight cut is fgure forgiving, but allows for personal shaping if preferred. There is a decent amount of wearing ease so if you have not previously sewn HP Semi Fitted, be prepared to possibly go down a size.
