Pattern Review: The Sewing Workshop Collection – Urban T-Shirt and Pants

Style Tip: Make this top from a directional print to highlight the grainline changes.

This review was originally featured in Threads #150 (August/September 2010).

The Sewing Workshop Collection-Urban T-Shirt & Pant

This pattern provides a modern update on the T-shirt with a front drape and bias-cut front pocket. The two-piece shirt front’s draped detail is created by a right front extension that tapers at the hemline. The straight-legged cropped pant does not have side seams. To highlight the hemline, the pant has a topstitched slit and hem with a button-and-loop closure. The waistline features elastic that starts at the side fronts and continues around the back. The band is left flat at center front. Our tester could see herself using the details on full-length pants, capris, or even Bermuda shorts.

(Sized XS [6]–XXL [22] for busts 31–46 in. and hips 34–47.5 in.)

Style Tip: Make this top from a directional print to highlight the grainline changes.
