Strip Tee for ADULTS

(11 customer reviews)


Shop sales are in British Pounds  CURRENCY CONVERSION


An undeniably sleek version of the humble t-shirt, with capped sleeves and a flattering semi-loose fit that sits at ease on your body.

Ideal for every day, it’s the t-shirt that promises to go with everything. The unexpected centre back strip (optional) adds distinction and gives this feminine t-shirt it’s saucy name.

Make with light to medium weight viscose or viscose/elastane for a beautiful, soft drape. In cooler weather, use French terry or a true knit and layer over a long sleeve fitted top.

Quick and easy to sew, we suggest you make at least two, so you have one to wear, whilst the other is in the wash.


Make this style in UK size 6 to 20.

    This pattern company is so refreshing and inspirational. Better than the Big Four. I’m a beginner garment sewist and these patterns encourage me to enjoy the creative process and incentivizes me to want to sew all my clothes. I never had success sewing knits until using this indie pattern company. My garment sewing journey has just begun. Thank you Ladies.

    Love love this pattern! I’ve made already several strip tees (although I still need to actually try the version with the strip 🤫) even made some for my mum and sister and they both loved it. The silhouette is simple but very flattering and because of the shape, it’s very easy to fit, even when I made it for my family. It’s a quick sew with just few pattern pieces. Hemming is what takes the longest 😆 The instructions are very clear and well written. I just eyed the hug hoodie and about to purchase that!

    I love this pattern and the finished Tee! It’s so simple to sew and wear and looks so polished when finished. Can’t wait to get fabric to make more!

  4. Helen

    I’m so pleased with my tee. I’m very new to sewing with knits so chose this pattern as there are so few pattern pieces. The instructions are great, so easy to follow and the photographs are very clear. I love that there are two different ways included to attach the neckband. An easy method and a more tricky method. Plus lots of tips to improve the look/ durability. For an even easier sew you can even miss out the strip down the back. The fit was spot on too. I would really recommend this pattern.

  5. Melissa Bailey

    Such a great, simple and very versatile pattern to sew. I love the fit and look of all my Strip Tee’s. It’s a recurring pattern on my cutting table for sure 🙂

    Only one hour left before your date arrives and nothing to wear? Grab the Strip Tee pattern and be surprised!
    An easy peasy sewing pattern that perfectly suits for quick sewings with great results.

  7. Mijke

    Great pattern!
    I really enjoyed making it.
    The shape of the tee is super stylish.
    I made one in a woven fabric and that turned out really good.

  8. Karly Nelson

    Such a great tee! It was easy enough as a beginner project for my daughter and her friend to make themselves and perfectly fits their style. Also made for some amazing memories! My daughter and her friend are already planning their next ones!

  9. Mijke

    Great pattern!
    The shape is perfect. Stylish and cool.
    I even made one in woven (just added a bit more room for my head to go through the hole ;)) and that looks great too.

    The best pattern if you’re a newbie in Sewing Heaven, so easy you could peel potatoes and sing a song backwards while making this tee 😉 And it’s stylish too, so you’re bound to make loads!

  11. Amy K

    She’s done it again! The Strip Tee is easy to wear and looks amazing. I made two during testing. And then modified the pattern to make two dresses and a long sleeve tee. It’s a new staple in my wardrobe, hanging alongside all my Groove dresses!
