A new pattern!
Let me introduce you to Lee. Lee is a unisex semi-fitted t-shirt for kids. It is currently available in pdf format, the paper version is coming soon!
Lee is a wardrobe stable for all kids. A semi fitted crew neck t-shirt with the option of three sleeve lengths. Choose from short, three-quarter or long sleeve. Catering for all the seasons.
Even though I designed it as semi-fitted shape it works if you want to size up for a looser fit or size down for a skinny fit (provided your fabric has enough stretch). You can suit your kids preferences. Or if like me you just prefer to get some extra life out of your makes, go bigger and it will be looser to start and semi- fitted as they grow!
The pattern offers a size range from 12 months to 12 years.
You can’t beat a short sleeve Lee with Frances leggings for an easy everyday play outfit ideal for our little explorers.
Lee is designed to be made in stretch jersey fabric. Cotton/elastane fabrics are readily available in lots of wonderful prints as well as plains. I have recently stocked up with some new prints that are listed in the jersey section on the website. Plains are a standard range that are always available too.
Mixing prints or prints and plains is a fun easy way to add individuality to your Lee t-shirt. This is also a great idea to use up those left over pieces from other projects!
The neckband can also be made using light weight rib fabric which I think adds a slightly sporty feel to a simple print like this tonal blue shark print.
I hope you enjoy the new pattern. My son has already asked for a short sleeve Lee with matching shorts from my free elasticated short pattern that he can wear as PJs in the winter. He gets hot in bed so even during the cooler months he doesn’t want full length PJ’s. I love this idea and so proud that he thought of it himself!
I love to hear about how you have used the pattern and even better see pictures!
