This slouchy T-shirt is quick and easy to make and requires minimal fitting. It combines a jazzy print with a contrasting yoke and is a loose, comfortable style with no darts or fiddly fastenings. You only need half a metre of each fabric, so it’s great for using up remnants from other projects.

Sew a contrast top

    1 Download and print the pattern. Cut front and back upper pieces from a plain cotton, plus facings. Cut front and back lower sections from printed cotton. Place the back pieces right sides together at the yoke seam, pin and stitch using a 1cm seam allowance. Press the seam downwards.

    2 Fold and press the inverted pleat marks, bring the pressed lines together, pin and iron in place. Topstitch the pleats down 8mm from the centre front as marked on the pattern, only on the contrast top.

    3 Place the front pieces right sides together at the yoke seam, pin and stitch using a 1cm seam allowance. Press the seam downwards. Place the front and back together, right sides facing, matching up the shoulder and side seams. Pin and stitch using a 1cm seam allowance.

    4 Place the front and back neck facings right sides together, pin and stitch at the shoulder seams using a 1cm seam allowance. With the top right side out, pin the neck facing to the garment, right sides together. Pin and stitch using a 1cm seam allowance. Clip the curves and fold the neck facing to the inside. Press and topstitch the neckline 8mm from the edge.

    5 To hem the armholes, fold the material 1cm over to the wrong side. Fold over a further 1cm, pin to secure and topstitch 8mm from the edge. To hem the bottom, fold the fabric over 2cm to the wrong side and repeat as before. Pin and topstitch 1.8cm from the edge. Press the entire garment.
