Hello there internet… it certainly has been a while.
If you follow me on Instagram then you may have noticed that I have been threatening to release a free T-shirt pattern on numerous occasions over the past year and a bit. I didn’t anticipate it taking quite so long to actually happen but it seems that, despite my best intentions to release it last year, 2018 had other plans.
The first version of this pattern came about a few years ago as a solution to my struggles in styling my ever growing collection of high-waisted pants and shorts. An avid follower of Caves Collect on Instagram, I noticed the Jim T and that its cut seemed the perfect solution to my clothing conundrum.
Although boxy, it was still slim (and cropped) enough to tuck into ones pants without creating a lot of bulk. I also loved the high neckline and longish sleeve and did my best to emulate this silhouette.
After innumerable disappearances down Pinterest rabbit holes (some of this inspiration of which is below) and a little tweaking of the fit over the past year, what has evolved over time is to me the perfect-fit t-shirt for my current wardrobe. I like to size down one size if I intend wearing the t-shirt with super high pants like the Perspehones or the Landers, or up a size for a more relaxed look to go with my Calyer pants .
So, without any further ado. I finally present to you The Stellan Tee. Its just a simple t-shirt, nothing fancy, but hopefully as useful to you as it has been to me. I could ramble on and on about how grateful I am for all the love that has been shown to me over the past 2 years, and how much it means to me (a lot more than I could ever articulate!!) but instead I give you this pattern as a small token of my appreciation.
*I had hoped to take some photos to accompany this pattern release, but I have found it really difficult to find the time to do so and I don’t want to delay it any longer. I hope to update with photos soon, but in the meantime you can search #thestellantee hashtag to get a general idea of the fit.
