It’s the Sewcialists TNTee midi challenge week next week! We’ve saved the the widest range of tees for this preparatory post: the set-in sleeve.
The set-in sleeve tee is possibly the classic tee shirt. Here, we’ve trawled the internet for just a sampling of what the set-in sleeve tee has to offer. This classic style is no longer limited to your common white knit, worn under a shirt. In this first batch, we’ve pulled puff sleeves, deep scoops, sharp v-necks, and stylish hems.
Bottom row, left to right: Basic Tee #2011, Iconic Patterns (available in straight and extended size range); Galaxy Tee, Pattern Scissors Cloth (free with blog subscription); and Concord Tee, Cashmerette Patterns (now up to size 32!).
For those wanting less shaping, no darts, and athletic to comfy styles, there’s a wide range of set-in sleeve tees.
Second Row, L to R: The Westbrook, Mimi G Style (features a center front seam and slightly wider neck), Daily Tee, The Wolf and The Tree (two size ranges); and Evergreen Tee, Greenstyle Creations (up to a size 4XL).
This next batch shows off interesting necklines, fits, and style lines.
Does one of these send you straight to your knits?
