I found this free pattern on www.fabric.com – it is VERY easy & this is the description they give:
You’ll rock this fabulous T-shirt, designed for lightweight fluid or drape-y t-shirting fabrics…think bamboo, modal, rayon or tencel knit blends, or even silk jersey. Pull-over, cap sleeved T-shirt has center front & back seams, a curved hemline and a self fabric scarf tie at the V neckline.
Fringe the ends of the scarf for a funky look, and add decorative stitches to the center front & back seams to really dial it up a notch… Wear this wardrobe essential over jeans or slouchy pants for a fabulous casual outfit, or try it as a layering piece under a slick suit jacket or a cozy cardigan
Depending on what fabric you use this pattern could suit any occassion.
I used a thin jersey fabric:.
I cut front & back on the fold but plan on trying the “decorative centre seams” at some point.
I also made the scarf with a double layer. Fabric was too thin for a single layer with fringe
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
