Pattern Description:

The Super Hero T-shirt is a versatile sewing pattern for boys and girls to help become whatever super hero one can dream of. With pattern pieces to create a t-shirt with built-in cape and eight different applique patterns for personalized symbols the possibilities are endless.

There is lots of customization available. The pattern includes a cape which is sewn into the t-shirt. The shirt body and waist are two separate pattern pieces so the body and waist may be made two different colors. This mimics the look of built-in underwear of many classic super-hero costumes. A belt completes the look. The pattern includes two sleeve lengths (short or long-sleeved).

There are applique patterns for personalized symbols inspired by Batman, Robin, Captain America, and The Flash. A customized symbol inspired by Superman is included for every letter of the alphabet.

The unisex pattern is available in nine sizes (12M, 18 M, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5, 6, 7, 8). The t-shirt is great for Halloween, birthday parties, photo shoots, play dates, trips to the park, running errands, and every day pretend play!
