Get your knits ready . . . . this is a tee you’ll want to make! Hi, I’m Gloria from gloriajune, with a look at the Ladies Classic Knit Tee (Style #11002) from Jocole Sewing Patterns. This is a fitted hip length basic t-shirt that gently caresses your shape -- a very flattering look! Don’t let the “fitted” description shy you away -- this garment doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable; instead, you’ll appreciate the silhouette that doesn’t “squeeze” you.
I made an elbow length sleeve with scoop neck. It was a great choice for my Flowered Engrams Delicate in Knit Art Gallery fabric! There are two neckline options (jewel or scoop), six sleeve options (cap, short, elbow, ¾ and long to the wrist or long to the middle of the hand). This gives you 12 different ways to make the shirt, covering every seasonal weather condition -- which means more value for you in a versatile pattern.
I cut the length at one size longer because I like a shirt that’s a bit past the hip for those days when I’m wearing yoga pants. Sewing this together was quick and stress free -- and as you can see from the photo below, the fit is flattering, not tight.
This pattern, as with all of the Jocole patterns I own, provides step-by-step instructions that are well-detailed, plus links to the Jocole Blog which has alternate construction methods and sewing tips for knit fabric, along with lots of other sewing information/helpful hints. If you’re a confident beginner, you can tackle this tee!
