The Little White eTee

The Little White eTee

What is the one wardrobe staple that you should have hanging in your closet, right next to your little black dress? The little white t-shirt of course! Or might we suggest adding the little white eTee to your closet? Ever since Marlon Brando donned a fitted white t-shirt in The Wild One, this unassuming garment has become a mainstay in both men and women's wardrobes. As the heat of the summer kicks in, nothing feels or looks cooler than a simple tee paired with a flowing skirt or cropped jeans. This is why the eTee is our featured pattern kit for July. 


The eTee is such a satisfying pattern to make – it takes very little time, fits well, and can be easily altered. For instance, as summer cools to fall and winter, you might find yourself wanting a shirt with long sleeves. The eTee Evolution tutorial will show you how to not only lengthen the sleeve but also how to lengthen the body of the garment. Adding the eTee pattern to your "sewing" wardrobe is perfect for year-round wear!

​We are offering three different eTee kits out of these three fabulous fabrics. Each kit will include the digital eTee pattern as well as the eTee Evolution tutorial! (1) For the purists out there, we have a bright white knit. This cotton knit is clean, crisp and classic. While you can't go wrong with white knit, it's also fun to make a printed eTee. (2) We love this soft, lightweight knit with a cubist print. It always makes us think of Picasso. The fabric is set off by a black and white striped neckline. (3) With summer in full swing, we had to make an eTee out of this bicycle pattern. Another lightweight knit, this fabric is comfortable to wear and has a beautiful drape. SOLD OUT!
