An elegant basic featuring a fluidly draped silhouette, the Ebony Tee is a versatile wardrobe staple you’ll want to wear every day.

Make a swingy knit dress or modern cropped top, with your choice of scoop or jewel neckline, and long or 3/4 sleeves. For the ultimate leggings companions, make an Ebony tunic, with a cascading hem and short raglan sleeves. All necklines are finished with a knit band.

This pattern sews together quickly, is flattering, versatile, easy, and hot flash proof. I altered the sleeves to elbow length and added bag pockets 4 inches below the bottom of the armhole for a Summer swing dress with the high neckline in an edgy mid century modern cotton Lycra print. Next I made a summer nightie with the low neckline in a Cotton spandex tie dye in pastel colors. I am planning to make a long sleeved/ pocketed version in black and off white bamboo Lycra that I’ll wear in Autumn with black boots, in Winter with black velvet leggings, and next Spring with a white lace petticoat. I also want to make the low necked tee; I think it is loose enough at the bottom I can tie it when I do handstands in yoga to stay modest. (I almost always add pockets; it makes life so much easier.)

Loved this pattern. Made a dress and a top out of super stretchy bamboo jersey. Easy fit and sew. Will definitely keep this pattern for more makes.

Not exactly haute couture, but very versatile.

This pattern is a basic that can be a 'go to' whenever you need a new anything: a top, a 'throw on' dress, a nightgown, a lounge garment, a maxi. I love it for its simplicity of design, its ease of construction, and its adaptability to many different kinds of fabrics. You can even make it as a gift without worrying about whether or not it will fit the gift recipient. In my opinion this pattern is well worth the price tag.

Fantastic pattern, I made the tunic and love how it turned out. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and the garment turned out perfectly with no modifications required. I especially liked the blog notes which showed how to add long sleeves to the tunic.

Super easy pattern

Made this in a lovely soft cotton jersey from Dragonfly fabrics.
The pattern was easy to follow and the dress can be “dressed up”” or down. Very pleased
