DIY Ellie T-shirt Sewing Pattern - Upcycle Sewing Pattern by Paganoonoo
This is our SIMPLEST DESIGN !! Recommended for those new to upcycling*. With upcycling, there is no need to print, cut out and tape together PATTERN PIECES. The starting materials are 3D garments, so instead the "pattern" is instructions and illustrations that define exactly what and where to cut (disassemble) and how to reassemble the pieces. You are purchasing a set of instructions that you print on 8.5" by 11" paper which can be put in a binder for future ease of reference.
• Refashion Unisex t-shirt to feminine blouse
• Loose fit below the bust with roomy hips
• Eye-catching, stylish Back Detail
• A high/low hem (slightly or dramatically)
• Neckline and cuff soft-look treatment
• Techniques to line the back panel
• Immediate Digital Computer Download File
• See Shop Listing for Hard Copy Pattern
The ELLIE T-Shirt silhouette is feminine and flattering, a dressier take on a standard t-shirt and creates a better fit by designing in hip ease while the high/low hemline gives a pleasing profile view. The silhouette works well with all figure types and pairs well with pants and skirts. The overall effect is feminine, comfortable, and confident.
A fun T-shirt and 1-2 dress shirts are needed. You will have successful results in creating a beautiful Ellie T-shirt CUSTOMIZED to your figure.
ALL SIZES ARE INCLUDED in that the size/fit of the finished garment is determined by the size of the shirt used for the upper torso, the other parts are self-scaling. ANYONE, any size, who can find a t-shirt or knit shirt to fit the way they like across the shoulders and bust, can successfully fit this pattern. If the shirt is tight at the hip, this is not a problem; the instructions walk you through the design process of adding ease.
The sewing is straightforward piece assembly, mostly using topstitching. The customization is achieved by picking the right size starting garment and making choices about where to cut by looking at the garment fit on your own body.
ADDITIONAL BONUS - Includes a 4-page tip sheet on design elements, color selection, fit, garment care, and technical tips.

*UPCYCLING is taking something existing, like clothing, and transforming it into something of greater value. This set of instructions and illustrations will walk you through every step of selecting garments, disassembly and reassembly, to create a beautiful, custom fit, one-of-a-kind garment.

Haven't tried it yet but it's a genius idea and I'm excited to transform some of my beloved t shirts into something more wearable.
What a cute pattern - The Ellie shirt is easy and fun to make and the pattern was perfect. Made it easy for me to do it myself.
At last! A way to make those less than perfect t - shirts look great! Thanks for the easy instructions and fun look! I've even done a few riffs on the pattern.
I didn't realize this pattern used the sleeves off shirts you cut up. I thought it was a pattern for cutting fabric to use. Otherwise the pattern was fine
