During summer, I am always on the search for perfectly flowy clothing and this Beach Tee is just that!  I designed this pattern to be extremely simple and completely customizable for any body type.  Made out of two rectangle fabric pieces, this tee is the easiest pattern I have ever designed.

I made this shirt in a classic blue and white stripe print I found at Joann Fabrics (linked here).  If you use this same fabric, be sure to pay attention to the stripe pattern when cutting your fabric, you will want to mirror the stripes on either side to maintain the pattern!  Incase this fabric sells out, I have linked a similar one below as well.  I used just over 1 yard of fabric.  To be safe, I would order 1.5-2 yards.



Below, you can download and print both the cutting diagram and construction diagram.  Note:  these images are not to scale, your own measurements will determine exactly what your fabric cuts will look like!

For reference, my hip measurement is 34″ and I normally wear an adult small or medium so the dimensions I used in reference to the cutting diagram are:

A:  40″

B:  22″

C:  7″

D:  10″


I hope you enjoy this wonderful Beach Tee.  Let me know if you have any questions, I am more than happy to help with sizing or anything you may need.

With Love,  Kaitlin

    1. Hello! I’m glad you found me! 🙂
      I really like finding inspiration through couture fashion and vintage pieces and experimenting with different techniques of garment construction. I actually don’t know many blogs that are super similar to mine. I really try to set myself apart by focusing on the free patterns and tutorials — making diy style and fashion available and affordable for all! One of my favorite blogs is Merrick’s Art. I like seeing her take on popular trends and reading through her occasional sewing tutorials. I also really enjoy reading Gal Meets Glam because her style is similar to mine! Instagram is always a good place to find different content by searching through relevant hashtags!
      I hope that helps. I look forward to creating more content that you will enjoy 🙂

    1. Hey! Thanks for reaching out to me. I’ve really dedicated a lot of time to mine and have been working on it full time for about the last 18 months. I would say just dive in headfirst! The best way to learn is just by doing. Best of luck 🙂
