There many boxy t-shirt patterns out there, but this is our current fave! As the pattern designer, Elizabeth Suzann states, "The Georgia is a perfect closet staple. A basic, boxy tee style that can be used a base pattern for endless variations. Make this style in various weight fabrics for year-round wear. 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 class we will be making the Georgia Tee, but you will also get a copy of the PDF Pattern, which includes Georgia Dress, and the Georgia Midi Dress in addition to the t-shirt version.
