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.

Sizes: Sizes 0-32 (PDF)

Hi,

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.

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.

A great pattern that can be made into a lot of variations. I made my usual forward shoulder adjustments and shortened the pattern in the upper chest area and at the waistline for my petite 5 foot. I usually reduce those area by 1 inch at each point but this pattern only needed a half inch adjustment to fit nicely. I ended up making three shirts to take on vacation! Thanks for the free pattern.

I can't rate yet as I am having a major problem with printing. I have ordered a new printer but why is this happening when I have been able to print everything before. I think that it has something to do with Windows 11 but am not sure. I have been able to print all pages, slowly, except for page 11. Darn. This is not the only pattern company that I have had this problem. New printer is coming next week and then I will see. I have the fabric ready and all of the parts of the pattern except for the shoulder and top of the front piece (page 11 of the q to 20 pattern). I will probably make the crop top but a bit longer for the first attempt.
