Striped knits for T-Shirt

Striped knits for T-Shirt

Our new Hyde T-Shirt was designed to be perfect for knit fabrics! What does stripe friendly mean exactly?

The lower hems are straight so that stripes don’t look distorted or cut off! Oftentimes t shirts have a curve in the front, like on our Tarlee T-Shirt, to account for the bust pulling the top up.

Because of the shape of the pattern pieces, it's easy to pattern match your stripes by ensuring you align the bottom of your pattern pieces along the same stripe.

The Fabric Snob (Canada) does a LOT of matching stripes and solids in a variety of weights and substrates. I put ‘stripe knit’ into their search and got over 80 results.

I’ve always been happy with the quality. Sometimes you have to wait for a bit for a pre-order to be done, but it’s always been worth it for me.
