Blank Canvas Tee

I’ve recently managed to finish a couple of projects but photographing them has not been happening beyond the mirror shot or the camera phone quick take.

I want to tell you about this basic canvas tee that is available as an open-source pattern here. You can download the pattern in your bust size and make mods on your first muslin.

I love the dolman sleeves and they really ease fitting this tee. There are also great directions on how to put the tee together so you’re not left on your own. Here’s my first tee: I gave you a little preview in my last post.

You can see I left the bottom hem untreated. On the next tee, I’m definitely going to add length. I could also add a waist band in the fabric and create a drop waist look.

I don’t know if you remember this fabric but I’ve had it lying around for a while, ever since I made that quick loungy dress last summer.

I’m trying to hack the basic canvas tee to make other looks. So far here’s my inspiration:

But in reality, I have a pile of cut fabric I’m doubting will turn into anything.

    I love love love what you did with this… If you have hack ideas but don’t know how to make them happen you can always email me the photos and I’ll eventually feature them as a hack… I think you might like this month’s hack very much. 🙂

    Dear Steph I stumbled upon your updated version size 35 of the blank canvas tee. I didn’t get on very well with the draft for all sizes but have just downloaded the 35 size and it will be great – thanks. I loved your talk on body image – so true.
    My Tiramisu dress looks wonderful I would like to send you a photo or image so you know it is me. It is the first dress I have made for a long time that I love. I will wear it to craft today to show the ladies. Will the Pavlova pattern ever be available again I would love to have a go at making it. I love this site.

      Hi Lyn, It’s Leila. I think you might have meant this comment for Steph’s blog. I am friends with her and I’m doing distribution for the northern hemisphere. Steph will be making the Pavlova pattern available on Etsy once the pre-sales are all done. It shouldn’t be much longer. I’m so glad you love your Tiramisu dress. You can find her email if you click on this link and scroll down

      enjoy your new dress!
