Hey y’all – today I’m sharing a free women’s t-shirt pattern. Introducing the Blanc T Shirt.
One of my New Year’s resolutions that the Coach so helpfully made for me was to stop sewing my clothes the day I wanted to wear them. I’m happy to say that this women’s t-shirt pattern has totally destroyed my resolve on that matter, but since I can sew one up in under 30 minutes from start to finish, maybe he won’t notice 🙂
Styled with gold flats and my oldest, most comfy pair of jeans, this shirt is already a comfy, drapey staple in my closet.
How to Get the Pattern
This pattern is a little different than my other free patterns. First, it comes in sizes XXS-3X (Busts 31-53 inches). Next, it’s not available through my newsletter subscription. Instead, you can download it when you join our Facebook group here (look in the “Files” section of the group to find it, which is easiest to see on a desktop, which you’ll want to be on to save the pattern to anyway). If you aren’t on Facebook, it’s also available in my shop.
The downloaded pattern comes with all instructions and diagrams, but in case you also want a video, you can watch how easy this is to make in the YouTube video below. If the video won’t load for some reason, you can also watch on YouTube here.
Tips to Sew Woven Bias Tape to Stretch Fabric
- Staystitch the neckline so that it won’t stretch as you apply the bias tape
- Shape the bias tape to the neckline curves before stitching it on. This post has a video on how to do that.
- Whenever you’re sewing a woven fabric to a knit, keep the knit fabric against the feed dogs and the woven fabric against the presser foot. This will help so you don’t get wrinkles in the knit fabric as you sew.
I decided to have a little fun with a few of my photos for this, and I hope you decide to do the same and share yours in our Facebook group!
