The Ultraviolet Tee will be an everyday staple of your summer like the UV rays from summer sunshine. Oversized with short cut-on sleeves, the shirt can be sewn from knits or wovens. View A is slightly cropped with a peek-a-boo on the side and a subtle high-low shape from front to back. Wear over a camisole, with high-waisted shorts, or enjoy showing a little peek of skin as you move around. Views B & C are standard shirt length. View B has a straight, even hem. View C has a curved hem with high-drama rise at the side. Available in 2 cup size options: A-C cup (dartless) or D-F cup (darted/gathered) and with an optional pocket. Fully illustrated step-by-step instructions provide separate construction information for wovens and knits.
The Sleeve Expansion pack greatly expands upon the versatility of your Ultraviolet Tee by offering 6 different sleeve options that can be added to any view of your Ultraviolet Tee. Use lightweight fabrics for protection from summer sun or heavier fabrics for brisk fall days. Short sleeve, straight sleeve, and tapered sleeve are suitable for knits or wovens. Cuffed sleeve (with or without button tab) are suitable for wovens. Batwing sleeves are suitable for stretch knits. All full length sleeves come drafted in 3 lengths – short, average, and tall.
The instructions have meticulous, step-by-step illustrations and also cover pattern options, fabric options, sizing & fit, printing & pattern assembly, and cutting & marking fabric.
This pattern is currently available in digital format only. The .pdf includes separate printing layouts for home printing (8.5″x11″/A4 paper) and copy shop printing (A0/wide format paper). For the home print option, the exact pages necessary for each view and option are listed so you only need to print the pages necessary for your view and size. The .pdf’s are layered so you can print only the size/s you want.
