As part of our MODKID Basics series, which also includes the Perfect Leggings pattern (sold separately), our Perfect Tee is just as the name describes... perfect! It has a slim fit and comes with two cutting lines for the sleeves (short and long) and two cutting lines for the bodice (cropped and regular). This easy-to-sew pattern will be a go-to all year round.
Never sewn with knits before? No worries! Sewing with knits is easy and fun with this step-by-step guide which includes lots of tips, photos and diagrams to guide you along.
