Pattern Description:

The Birgitte Basic Tee is your perfect tee!

It's a true wardrobe staple, that can be varied endlessly.
Make a top for gym class or create a fabulous party top. It all depends on the fabric you choose!

This pattern is for a close fitting t-shirt with set in sleeves.
Choose between V-neckline or deep U-neckline and between short sleeves, long sleeves or slightly bell shaped 3/4 length sleeves.

The t-shirt has a bit of negative ease at the bust area but skims loosely over the stomach area. Perfect for women of all shapes and sizes.

The t-shirt is one of our most basic garments, and you can wear it with everything. I made a 3/4 sleeved U-necklined teal version, which is perfect for wearing with wool dress trousers or a nice skirt for work in winter, and a short sleeved v-neck which works great with cut off denim shorts for a summer day at the beach.

With a basic pattern like this, only your fabric choices set the limit.

I am doing a series on fitting t-shirts on my blog.
The first one, about Full Bust Adjustment can be found

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • This pattern includes all sizes from XXS (bust = 78 cm/31") to 4XL (bust = 126 cm/49").


  • This pattern is designed for knit fabric containing elastane (also often called lycra or spandex) to give it stretch. You will need about 95 cm fabric that is 140 cm (55) wide for the short sleeved version, 120 cm fabric (140 cm wide) for the 3/4 length version and 140 cm (140 wide) for the long sleeved version .

You Will Also Need:

  • Thread to match your fabric.
  • A stretch twin needle if you want a twin needle hem.
