About the Olivia Oversize Tee
Olivia is awesome – my favourite at the moment!
This jersey tee has a lot of ease, but still shaping enough to not look sloppy. The t-shirt has short or 3/4 length sleeves, finished with ribbing (or you could just hem the sleeves) and has a hem ribbing band as well, which really adds something to the shape of the tee.
This pattern includes all sizes from XXS (bust = 78 cm/31″) to 4XL (bust = 126 cm/49″). See image of size chart for further measurements.
Choose your pattern size based on your bust measurements.
Like most patterns, this pattern was drafted for a size B bust (maximum 4.5 cm difference between high bust measurement and full bust measurement).
This top has about 10 cm bust ease! So unless you have a full bust more than 10 cm bigger than your high bust, you don’t need a Full Bust Alteration. But you should still choose your size after your high bust measurement if you wear a C-cup bra or above.
This pattern is a .PDF download, which you will be able to download right after ordering. You can then print the pattern on your home printer (A4 or letter) and easily assemble it following the instructions included in the instructions.
The Olivia Oversize Tee was designed for a lightweight jersey with a good drape (we need the soft drape!), such as rayon or bamboo jersey.
For the short sleeved version you’ll need about 100 – 110 cm (39 – 43″)of fabric (140 cm (55″) wide).
For the 3/4 sleeve version you’ll need about 150 – 170 cm ( 59 – 67″) depending on the size you make.
