Jocole Womens' Easy Cap Sleeve Tee

I managed to sew up a couple of t shirts on the weekend, and it seems I have new FAVE pattern!

Why do I love this pattern? 

Well... all Jocole patterns are easy to follow, from finding your size to putting together the A4 sheets. Jodi ( the designer) puts so much work and effort into making them the very best for you.


This Easy Cap Sleeve tee pattern is two pieces: a front and a back! So it goes together very quickly. You are also helped along every step of the way with a full pictorial- so if you are new to knits- you will have no dramas. Jodi covers tips and tricks for dealing with knits- also sewing with or without a serger/overlocker. 

I love the extra ideas Jodi has for finishing your sleeves, necklines and edges- well worth buying the patterns just to read these!

Jocole's tutorial for binding is a must read too!


Mine are constructed from some knits from my ( slowly shrinking ) Stash. 
The grey is a cotton interlock, the blue a cotton jersey. 

Multsized 6 sizes included: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL. available at Crafty Mamas as a pdf pattern!

I have made up this pattern too and was thrilled with the fit. Such a great basic shape.

These look good Lisa! Did you flatlock that grey sleeve hem? I'm trying to figure out how to get my overlocker to do that - I'm sure it can!!!
