This awesome designer has improved and re-drafted her classic boys t-shirt that she shared a few years ago. It’s even better than it was before and the pattern and tutorial are still FREE. The link for the FREE download is at the end of this post.
This great fitting t-shirt comes with three sleeve options, short/long regular and layered. And the designer has also included an optional cuff and pocket piece to add if desired.
This free shirt pattern now gives your boys a better fitting t-shirt and because the designer has added more sizes then you’ll be able to make even more boys t-shirts. If you do have the old version the designer recommends that you re-download and try this new improved version.
The designer loves the look of layered sleeves without the bulk of actually wearing two shirts. If you want to make this option then the pattern instructions for creating this look are a combination of the long and short sleeve easy shirt pattern.
The pattern is now in sizes 2-14 years as follows – 2, 3, 4/5, 6/7, 8, 10/12, 13/14 and 14+. You will need 1/2 – 1 1/2 yards of knit fabric for this project.
