From the Designer: "This is first style for a series of patterns with printless instructions. The blog hosts a set of linked photo rich, instructions on how to make a Tee-Shirt from 'What stitch to choose' to 'Inserting a knit neck band'. Not only do we get to save paper but this series all come at a lower price point. Start with Tee-Shirt Construction.
Design - This is a classic base layer. Chic, super high neckline, streamline shape with a subtle shirt-tail hemline. The broader shoulder line and sculpted armhole gives this wardrobe essential a modern point of difference. Designed with requirements of Merino Knits in mind. Maximise the Glacial's snuggly, thermal potential of this style.
Fit - Working with Merino knits to develop this pattern the tightness has been adjusted on different areas of the body to create a neat fit around the armhole and shoulder without unessesary cling throughout the lower arm or body. A pure cotton will produce a softer shape for an effortless look."
