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 here: http://blog.mariadenmark.com/?p=1046 BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Sewing basic seams. Everything else is explained in the pattern. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS This pattern includes all sizes from XXS (bust = 78 cm/31") to 4XL (bust = 126 cm/49").
