About 15 years ago I walked in to a Forever 21 and bought a simple green t-shirt. To this day, it is still my absolute favorite shirt and I NEEDED to have more since I haven’t found anything that fit even close to as well since I bought it. Now you all can own my favorite t-shirt AND have so many other cute tops and dresses as well. Max is an awesome basic tee pattern, but is also jam packed with so many other awesome options to add variety to your wardrobe.

All files are PDF files that can be printed at home on Letter or A4 sized paper. Each pattern includes one file for the pattern and print-at-home pieces, another file containing the copy shop A0 (33.1″ wide) pattern pieces, as well as a projector file. We’ve placed the pattern pieces on individual layers so you can print only the size(s) you need, saving you on paper and ink.
This pattern is designed for medium to heavy weight knit fabric with 40% 4-way stretch. The bodice requires good revocery. Triblend, ribbed knits, bamboo lycra, and similar fabrics will all work very well.
