Gathered Panel Tee - FREE SEWING PATTERNkaren-Millen-top


Here is my latest make – the Gathered Panel Tee. It’s loose fitting and gathered up one side with an asymmetric hem. It is actually an adaptation / pattern hack of my original Panel Tee and was inspired by this lovely grey marl top that that I saw in this seasons Karen Millen collection. (See left)

In my version here, the sleeves are made from a really light weight lemon jersey which is slightly transparent, and then trimmed with a cut off of the main grey marl jersey fabric. To make this version, I just added some extra length to one side of the central panel and then gathered it up, back to it’s original length, to fit the side panel.

The Gathered Panel Tee is no longer available as a free PDF download - you can now buy the Panel Tee & Panel Dress (from which it was adapted) as a multisize paper or downloadable pattern. Sorry for any disappointment, but there are lots of other free patterns on the patterns tab so please have a browse.

        How wonderful that we can encourage each other to see. I really like that about the sewing community. People share their projects & we can all learn share with each other. That’s fantastic & it started with your awesome blog!

    Would LOVE to make this top but pattern seems only able to be printed on A4. I’m in US and would need Letter Size ability. Any suggestions?
