Basic tee

I have made several of these tees. Both long and short sleeved. They were very easy to make and only took an afternoon each to make. They came out really well

Great everyday unisex T-Shirt

The perfect his and hers T-shirt, great instructions and very easy sew.

My first Ellie & Mac pattern

And it won’t be my last! The pattern was simple to download and I then sent it to be printed by an online copy shop. The pattern was simple to follow with clear instructions. Yet to find out if the sizes are good as I’ve made the T-shirt as a Christmas present.

Would recommend and will make again.

This shirt fit my husband so good - surprisingly so! Most shirts he buys the shoulders are too wide and end up past his shoulder. Not the case for this pattern. The point where the shoulder meets the sleeve met right where they should! Excellent patter :)
