The Grail - 4201 - Body Shape A
A good t-shirt is hard to find. The perfect t-shirt? As elusive – and as valuable – as the Holy Grail.
This version of the Grail is specially drafted for the "A" body shape, which has a smaller bust range and a pronounced waist/hip curve. This shape is also known as the "pear," but who wants to be a piece of fruit?
The Grail is the shirt that will never betray you. This is the top that you can grab without thinking, because you know it fits you perfectly. It is quick, easy, and fun to sew, with clear instructions that are friendly even to someone who's never sewn their own clothing before.
Because Vesta Patterns are available for three different body shapes, you can select a pattern that's in the right proportions for your figure. That means less trial and error, and more time spent on the fun stuff.
The Grail is intended for 100% cotton or 100% merino wool knit fabric with moderate stretch and good recovery. Each pattern includes three sleeve variations, two necklines, and one tank. It's a pattern for all seasons.
The tank is fitted to the body measurements and works best with medium-weight knits.
The Grail-A tees have 2" of ease at the bust and waist and 3" at the hip. For a snugger tee, sew one size down from your usual size, or blend between sizes for a custom fit. The 3/4 sleeve shape is wide by design.
The PDF version of this pattern will be delivered to you as soon as you check out. It's formatted to print on either US letter paper or A4 paper.
The printed version of this pattern features luxurious, hand-folded 20 lb tissue stock, and packaging printed on recycled French paper.
