The Core T-Shirt is a timeless wardrobe basic, our take on a classic crew-neck t-shirt. With a slightly boxy silhouette, it comes in two lengths with two sleeve options and is destined to be made more than once.

View A is a semi-cropped tee with short sleeves, the perfect length to pair with high-waisted pants. View B hits at the hip with 3/4 length sleeves. All views feature an optional patch pocket and an optional back neck and shoulder binding for a professional-looking finish.

Great for less stretchier knits

I had a stretch fabric that had poor recovery. It was perfect for this pattern, as it had extra room. It would be great if there was more necklines eg. V. I'm going to try and hack a V neck next time I make it. Thanks Closet Core!

Great offer

This is a great pattern for a basic t-shirt. It was a good fit and I will be making many more. I hadn't made anything in knit fabric for decades but this went together very smoothly. Thankyou.

Nice basic tee

Pleasantly surprised at the quality of this pattern since it was free. The instructions were just as thorough and well written as a regular Closet Core pattern. I made a toille and it went together perfectly without modifications or problems.

Fantastic t-shirt!

Super easy to make and very well draft. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow, as it is typical on the closet core patterns. I've made a few, will make many more. And it's a free pattern!! Amazing 👕

Great that it's free (Thank You, Closet Core!), unfortunately it's just not a Tee for me - I'm looking for a more fitted t-shirt; this one's too boxy for me. Other than that, a great & easy pattern to fit & make!

Boxy Tee that has a great fit.

Sized down an over large tee shirt. Great fit on the shoulder . Thanks for a lovely pattern.
Note: Look at the finished measurements carefully as the cropped top is short rather than at your waist.
