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.

    Love the pattern

    Knew I had to sew this tshirt when I saw the pattern. I did a "test" on some material on hand. Directions very easy to follow. I did make a few changes: sleeve one layer with narrow hem and did a binding on the neck. Overall pleased with the look and want to try a woven fabric; I have some rayon print which would make a cool summer top. Also want to try making long sleeve. Thanks!

    Easy sewing

    It is such an easy pattern, few pieces make it quite simple and the instructions are clear. The only modification I made was shortening the length by 2" as I'm on the petite side, something I have to do quite often. I made a version A, with the sleeves uncuffed, and with a very drapey knit it looks almost like a wavy sleeve which I like a lot!

    It was love at first sight. I have been looking for a t-shirt pretty plain with details. This one tick all the boxes and I love it. The finishes are lovely and I fast make too. I have planned at least 6 more to do.

    A wonderful pattern! The shoulder yoke construction is elegantly simple; the pleats a bit unusual and very flattering. I have made it twice and will use it many times more.

    I really love the details of this top and have made three so far. It's very easy to construct and I like the finished result so much. I shortened mine a few inches and sewed an XS in the size D cup. Size small matched my measurements but I like a more fitted look.I did have to enlarge the armholes then the sleeve quite a bit, as they were very tight.

    Tees are so useful and this shirt has the unique details that make it both useful and special. Sewing was easy, explanations were as always good and straight forward, it's easy to sew with a regular machine and the tee turned so nice! I wear it all the time.

    Beautiful Tee!

    I choose tees from my closet more than anything else because they are so comfortable. This is a great pattern because it includes fun details like a cuffed sleeve, pleats, and yokes on the shoulders which you could easily use for color blocking. The other great part of this pattern is that it includes pattern pieces for different bust cups, with no darts! This was a great addition to my pattern library!
