The Nicety Top is a fitted tee sewing pattern with a slight flare at the hip. This tee is unique in that it is fully lined for a smooth shape, which is perfect for showing off…niceties. The neckline has a generous scoop in the front and is unbound because the lining finishes it. Additionally, there are two optional features to the Nicety Top. First, you can choose either a long (7/8) or short sleeve. Then, you can add the waist wrap to add definition and make things a little fancier. The tee sewing pattern is drafted with negative wearing ease in the bust and arms.
The Nicety is a size-inclusive sewing pattern with 20 numeric sizes. We use 3D fitting and 2 different drafting blocks to ensure a good fit. The top will require 1-3 yards of fabric for the lining and another 1-3 for the outer layer. Ideal fabrics for The Nicety top are lightweight jerseys. This is a beginner-level tee sewing pattern in a digital format. The files are provided in A0, A4, and US Paper sizes for easy printing.
