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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
