New Pattern Release: The Excel Tee

Posted by Melanie Burns on

Hello Greenstylers! We have another exciting pattern release for you today: The Excel Tee

The Excel Tee is a semi fitted performance top that has everything you could ask for: comfort, style, and amazing fit! This shirt has some really cool features, like a full arm to hem side seam gusset, optional watch window, and optional thumb holes. You can choose between long or short sleeved versions to suit your needs. Whether you make it out out warm fabric for winter, or use mesh for the side gusset for extra ventilation during the summer, the Excel tee is perfect for all seasons!

This pattern is for top weight performance stretch knits only. Look for knits with at least 50% horizontal stretch and 25% vertical stretch. Depending on size made, this pattern will take anywhere from 1 1/2 to 2 1/4 yards of fabric. As usual, don't forget to pre-wash your fabrics!

This pattern follows our masculine size chart and covers a wide range of measurements: 33-61" chest and 27-57" waist. This pattern is also drafted for a height of 5'10", but includes lengthen/shorten lines to make adjusting the pattern for height super easy! This pattern also includes 3 pages of fitting suggestions to help you make this pattern a perfect fit!  

The Excel Tee is on sale for $9 through April 12, after which it will return to full price of $12. Get your copy here now!
