I’m so excited to share our new releases with you today! The Sporty Piko has quickly been filling up my closet! You can get such a great variety of looks with this pattern <3
These patterns are drafted for a stretch knit fabric, but you are open to so many different types depending on what look you’re going for. Want an everyday tee? A hemmed option paired with drapey jersey will give you that look. Or are you going for a sweatshirt feel? Try a french terry paired with the hood, drawstring or banded option for that more sporty style.
Both the adult and youth versions have a very loose, relaxed, even oversized fit. They are drafted with two sleeve lengths (short and long sleeve with cuffs), a large size range (XXS – Plus 3X in women’s and 3M – 14 in youth), have multiple length options (crop hemmed, crop with drawstring, shirt banded and curved tunic), two choices to finish off the neckline (traditional neckband and a hood) as well as a fun, optional front chest pocket. The back has a yoke at the top you can play up or down depending on fabric choices.
The Sporty Piko can make a great athletic top or a basic everyday tee too. They’re so quick and simple to sew up you will have a stack in no time!
