Prepare to Sew

Hansie is a woven tee with cut-on sleeves. It’s a total wardrobe staple and the perfect blank canvas for fun fabrics and creative pattern hacks. Hansie features a relaxed fit that you can still easily tuck in your pants or skirt. It has a high, rounded neckline finished with a facing, darts, and a pocket at the chest.

Fabrics to shop: Look for lightweight or medium-weight woven fabrics such as linen, chambray, batiste, lawn, voile, linen blends, rayon challis, cupro, and Tencel. When selecting your fabric, consider the drape. The sleeves are cut-on, so fabrics with less drape will create a boxier silhouette.

Fabrics to avoid: Avoid heavyweight fabrics such as denim or canvas. If you choose a medium-weight fabric, find something with a suitable drape, like Tencel or cupro.

Fit: This woven T-shirt is roomy enough that you can pull it over your head without closures but slim enough that you can tuck it into your pants, shorts, or skirt. Look at the finished garment measurement chart or the fit guide below to get specific ease measurements.

Tips for sewing: If you notice that the underarms are puckering, clip the underarm seam allowance. This will allow the seam to relax.
