The Perfect Fitted Cap Sleeve Tee

The Perfect Fitted Cap Sleeve Tee

A couple of weeks ago, when getting ready for this photoshoot, I needed the perfect tee.  Something fitted to go with the full skirt, with minimal cap sleeves and a scoop neckline.
I didn’t have that perfect top.  I have a Shade Clothing tee, but the neckline is too high, and I feel like it is not flattering at all.  I also have a couple of Layers Clothing tees, but I don’t have white.  I really like the fit and cut of the Layers ones, but they are no longer in business.
After the photoshoot, which were skirt-only pictures, I decided to make my own
Perfect Fitted Cap Sleeve Tee.
I used a Layers tee (size M) as a guide and slightly modified it
(shortened the sleeve just a tiny bit, and added a band to the neckline).
I am SO happy with the way it turned out.
Here is the free pattern (Scribd) or here (Google Docs) you can download.  Hand-drawn, sorry!
Print with no page scaling.
It is a size Medium.
(I just realized I forgot to include a 1″ scaling box,
but if you measure between the arrows on the fold symbol, it is 1 1/4″)


3/4 yard Jersey Knit fabric
(The nicest you can find.  You don’t want super thin, see-through knit)

1. Lay your pattern piece on the fold.  Cut 2 along the higher neckline (back piece)

(Use a 1/4″ seam allowance)

Update: OK- Before  you sew your shoulder and side seams, go to Crafterhours and look at her method for sewing in neckbands.  (As well as see her super cute dress/tutorial/pattern!)
I am going to try this method next time! 

Tip: You might want to adjust the band so a little more band is in the front. (Move the marks on the band at the shoulder seam toward the front neckline about 1 centimeter on each side.)  This helps with puckering.
(When stitching the neckband on, remember to stretch only the band, not the top.)

  5. Looking at your website post I browsed your site a little and noticed you aren’t ranking as well in the search engines as you might be. I possess a couple of blogs myself and i believe you should use speed rank seo, just search it on the search engines. You’ll find it’s a really nice service that literally brings you plenty more traffic. Continue the product quality posts!

  6. Wow, wonderful weblog format! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is great, let alone the content

  7. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
