There are many boxy t-shirt patterns, and this is a fave! As the pattern designer, Elizabeth Suzann states, "The Georgia is a perfect closet staple. A basic, boxy tee style that can be used as a base pattern for endless variations. Make this style in various weight fabrics for year-round wear. The perfectly scooped neckline hits right at the collarbone and doesn’t show bra straps. Substantial cuffs give weight and luxury to the piece but are very straightforward to construct".
In this workshop we purchase the pattern and provide the printout for the cropped tee view. Participants will be emailed the PDF Pattern, which includes the Dress and Midi lengths as well.
