Ebony T-Shirt & Knit Dress Pattern
An elegant basic featuring a fluidly draped silhouette, the Ebony Tee is a versatile wardrobe staple you’ll want to wear every day.
Make a swingy knit dress or modern cropped top, with your choice of scoop or jewel neckline, and long or 3/4 sleeves. For the ultimate leggings companions, make an Ebony tunic, with a cascading hem and short raglan sleeves. All necklines are finished with a knit band.
Sizes: Currently available in sizes 0-20 only (PDF)
- Make a fluid, drapey tee with light to medium-weight knits with at least 30% crosswise stretch, such as rayon, cotton, silk, merino & linen jerseys. A more sculptural Ebony can be made with sturdier fabrics like ponte and scuba knits.

this is a great pattern and works up really quickly. I used the crushed velvet from Core and made the dress version (added 2" to length). I wore it a number of times this holiday season and got many compliments. The fabric was surprisingly easy to work with, I did serge my seams, but even without that there was some "shedding" but not bad, and the stretch is great. Definitely have plans to make more versions of this as a dress as well as tops. My daughters will also get some pieces made for them. These patterns run true to size, I"m 5'8" and do find I need to add a few inches to length pretty consistently here. Instructions are well done, dress made in an afternoon.
I love tunic tops so I thought I would give this a try. It was incredibly easy to put together and the shirt is one of my most comfortable. I made the medium length and it was longer than I expected (I should have checked the measurements provided) but I still wear it regularly and get many compliments. It’s definitely worth another make sometime soon.
