The Seedling Tee, easy to wear, and pair, that fits you just right. A project to be proud of, that makes you feel GOOD in it. A nice everyday V-neck set-in sleeve tee, the seed stitch trim giving it just a little bit of something extra. Pairs well with shorts, jeans, skirts, and as a layering piece under a cardigan.

Knit in DK weight from the top down, with a contiguous neckline and a short row sleeve cap for minimal finishing. Pattern features 4 body shaping options, and optional horizontal bust dart shaping so you get the fit that you want.

Pink sample has Hourglass shaping

Beige sample has A-line shaping

Cream sample has straight shaping

Difficulty: Intermediate

As with all my garment patterns, you can use the code ANTIFATTAX at checkout to get 20% off the pattern price, to assist in combating the extra cost fat makers face. Intended for sizes 6-9.

Pattern has been professionally tech edited by Kristina McGrath, and test knitted.
