The Aeolian Tee is one of our favourite patterns. We've sewn samples in boiled wool, ramie (second picture), double gauze (third photo) and silk and they were all gorgeous. The pattern was designed for knits, but works equally as well in a woven... you just need to finish the neckline with bias binding. The pattern includes five different lengths - top, tunic, knee, calf & ankle.
From the Designer: "The Aeolian Tee is the perfect boxy cotton tee, as tall as it is wide. It has a square shaped sleeve, strategically inserted to the armhole for maximum 3D body. Sized down, it makes a perfect sheath. Neat, but not tight. Excellent in a glamour knit for a super clean, mini, cocktail dress. Sized up it responds with mega drapes and kaftan-esque volume."
Skill Level: Easy to Intermediate. Comes with illustrated, step-by-step instructions.
Sizes: 6 - 18
Fabric Recommendations: Knits from light cotton to french terry. If using a light weight knit, the neckband can be made from self fabric. For heavier knits use a contrast rib for neckband. This pattern can also be made from woven fabric. If using woven fabric, finish the neckline with bias binding.
