There’s a new pattern in town! It’s the Liesl + Co. Chai Tee and it’s your closet’s new best friend. Learn more about the pattern by visiting Liesl’s introduction post. Next, go see photos of some examples made by our testers. Then come join us soon to make this shirt alongside your virtual sewing pals as we will be hosting a Chai Tee sew-along from October 9 to October 11.
This simple and stylish pull-on top is much more than a basic tee. It has an easy fit and is as comfortable to wear as your favorite T-shirt, but it brings a touch of elegance to every day with its shoulder yokes and pleats and its feminine shaping. Leave the sleeves uncuffed (View A) or stitch the cuffs in place to secure them (View B). The pattern comes with separate pieces for A/B, C, and D cup sizes to help you make a great fitting shirt.
Designed for lightweight cotton knit fabric with moderate stretch. This tee can also be sewn from drapey woven fabrics, but you may need to go up a size or two for a good fit.
Chai Tee Sew-Along Schedule
Day 1: Assemble the Shirt Front, Yokes, and Back
