Wanderlust Tee - Simple Sewing Pattern for Knits
A wardrobe essential, the Wanderlust Tee is perfect no matter where you are headed. This breezy, boxy tee exudes effortless style. The a-line shape means a closer fit in the shoulders, keeping a put-together look without being clingy. A wide neck and slightly cropped length finishes off this design for a modern look. Whether you have a day of errands or a dinner date on your calendar, you’ll be looking smart and feeling cozy in your new favorite tee! Wanderlust is a simple tee made out of a knit fabric. The set-in sleeves are attached while the garment is flat making them perfect for a beginner. The neckline and hems are finished with a double needle for a professional look easily achieved on a regular sewing machine.
