NEW RELEASE: Heather Daily Tee Tester Round-Up

NEW RELEASE: Heather Daily Tee Tester Round-Up

For one of my first FREE patterns to introduce you to Rivet's style, I chose a basic, versatile tee. While I love challenging my sewing skills and making intricate things, sometimes I just need a T-shirt. I called this the 'daily tee' because it really is perfect for everyday wear. Heather has a small amount of positive ease throughout, but is shaped to flow next to the body. Here is mine, made with DBP.


The Heather Tee is a slim fit tee that is an excellent wardrobe builder. Choose from short, elbow, 3/4 or long sleeves. Necklines include crew, high scoop, and low scoop. It's a fast and easy sew, beginner friendly, and perfect for showing off a pretty fabric.

1. Athena


Athena made two in different bases in size 10FBA. On the left is cotton lycra and on the right is double brushed poly. See what I was saying about showing off prints?!

Lindsay made her top from a lightweight jersey in size 2. It looks so soft and comfortable, and I LOVE the heathered blue!
