- FABRIC & SUPPLIES
An elegant basic featuring a fluidly draped silhouette, the Ebony Tee is a versatile wardrobe staple you’ll want to wear every day.
Make a swingy knit dress or modern cropped top, with your choice of scoop or jewel neckline, and long or 3/4 sleeves. For the ultimate leggings companions, make an Ebony tunic, with a cascading hem and short raglan sleeves. All necklines are finished with a knit band.
Ebony is available as an instant gratification PDF (with copyshop and print at home files), or as a beautifully printed pattern. See our guide to printing & assembling PDF files here. Both versions feature our meticulously written and easy to follow instructions, designed to give everyone beautiful results regardless of skill level.
Model notes: Our model is 5'-10" and is wearing a size 10.
Make a fluid, drapey tee with light to medium-weight knits with at least 30% crosswise stretch, such as rayon, cotton, silk, merino & linen jerseys. A more sculptural Ebony can be made with sturdier fabrics like ponte and scuba knits.

From the Closet Case Patterns Community
After struggling for hours with a small Christmas project, I cut out the Ebony pattern in a remnant from LAfinch. From cutting to almost finishing (sans hem and sleeves) took two hours. When my sons girlfriend tried it in the next day it was a perfect fit so I pinned the hem and sleeves and put the double needle in to quickly finish the dress. The neckline instructions were perfect and it fit perfectly. After removing the neck band twice in another dress a few weeks earlier I was impressed.
ClosetCase patterns have the best instructions and this was another win. Can’t wait to make another one!
The instructions are easy to understand. I ordered a paper pattern and the booklet is lovely. I discovered that more yardage was needed than recommended for the dress in my size and customer service was quick to respond and help with the issue.
I have made two dresses and they are so comfortable and cute. It is an easy and satisfying sew. I look forward to sewing more Closet Case patterns
I am NOT a clothing maker, but I got this pattern to use with my new serger. I completed the t shirt in less than 2 hours and it is a perfect fit! The pattern was easy to follow and I can see many more in my future. Maybe I AM a clothing maker!
I made the tee in a beautiful blue knit. Pattern instructions were very easy to read. Did not have to make any adjustment. Plan to make the dress, just haven’t found the perfect fabric. Super pattern, would recommend for all skill levels.
I have made the dress but I am not sure if I like how I look in the fabric I used. I think will try again using a less flamboyant fabric. Also I think I will bring in the volume a little.
As far as putting the pattern together, it was very easy. Very much like a typical t shirt
This is a great pattern. I sewed the t-shirt in an afternoon. The instructions are thorough and easy to understand.
