The Core T-Shirt is a timeless wardrobe basic, our take on a classic crew-neck t-shirt. With a slightly boxy silhouette, it comes in two lengths with two sleeve options and is destined to be made more than once.

View A is a semi-cropped tee with short sleeves, the perfect length to pair with high-waisted pants. View B hits at the hip with 3/4 length sleeves. All views feature an optional patch pocket and an optional back neck and shoulder binding for a professional-looking finish.

Terrific T Shirt Pattern!

This is a great core pattern-- the shoulders and neckline fit well, assembly is easy, and there's an excellent tip on taping the shoulder and back neckline. (And the black, tencel/cotton/spandex jersey was a very good choice for this top. Cuz, black tee you know.)

My delivery was speedy, packed nice, sturdy box. The fabric is beautiful. I love the color. My plans are to make a short sleeved tailored blouse. I should have no trouble with this fabric. It's a little on the medium weight side. I live in florida so I wonder if it can be worn on real hot days. I think this will be great to wear for a Florida sunset viewing. I will be buying more fabric from Core Fabrics.

Just sewed up the new pattern and I loved it! Absolutely no fitting issues and it will be perfect with all my higher rise Ginger jeans.


Not made yet, but love the style and neckline

Best T-Shirt Ever!

I am a beginner and have tried many t-shirt patterns. This is the easiest, best fitting I have ever made. Love the cropped length, very current. Thank you for this pattern.
