Ultimate T-Shirt PDF Sewing Pattern

From: £11.50


Meet your new go-to knit sewing pattern: the Ultimate T-Shirt is great for jersey beginners, and an absolute breeze for more experienced sewers. This pattern comes together incredibly quickly, and we’ve given you lots of variations so you can get the most out of it.

With three different necklines and sleeve lengths to choose from, you can make up to 9 different versions of this pattern! We think it will be a great one to hack and combine with other patterns too. Choose between a crew, scoop or V neck and make the sleeves short, 3/4, or full length.

The bodice is nice and long so it won’t ride up when you wear it over jeans, but the Ultimate T-shirt also looks great tucked into smarter trousers and skirts, perfect for the office.

Use a light to medium weight knit fabric such as viscose or bamboo jersey for a nice fitted look. Go for something sturdier like French terry or lightweight cotton jersey (ideal for beginners) for a more classic T-shirt look.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
