The Tarlee T-Shirt [pronounced like Taa-lee] is the perfect fitted-but-not-tight top that is great for layering or wearing alone!

The neckline is a crew neck (View A) or a turtleneck (View B). View C features an envelope back that is both an accessibility feature and looks great. All views can be made with short or long sleeves. Views A and B feature a shaped seam that’s designed to fit your body and includes shaping for a rounded high back so the back neck sits flat. We have designed the neckband and turtleneck to be a no-fuss application.

The T-shirt can be sewn on a serger/overlocker or entirely on a regular domestic sewing machine


We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Tarlee region, the Ngadjuri people, and pay our respects to Elders past and present.

Sizes Available:

If our sizes are too small to include you, we will grade our patterns up for you. Please get in touch with us here.

Cup sizes
Where cup sizes have not been stated it's because the pattern is dart-free and has been designed to be 'cup-size flexible'. If you're unsure about what size to use, you can always email your measurements to for specific sizing advice.

Finished Garment Measurements:

See chart in images.

Selecting your size: This pattern has some negative ease, especially in the sleeves. If your measurements span several sizes, we suggest blending between size cut lines (this is sometimes called “grading between sizes”).

Please read Page 5 in our instruction booklet prior to selecting your size.

Alterations in length can be easily made by shortening or lengthening at the hem.

It is always recommended to sew a toile/muslin before cutting in to your 'good' fabric.

Suggested Fabric:

This pattern is designed to be sewn with knit fabrics, with either 2-way or 4-way stretch and at least 40% stretch. We suggest cotton jersey, cotton/spandex jersey, interlock, bamboo jersey, merino jersey, merino interlock, cotton/modal jersey

The Tarlee T-Shirt looks great with our Noice Jeans- wear it out, tuck it in, or do the french half tuck! You can pair your Tee with our wide-leg Glebe Pants, drapey Willandra Pants or our tapered, side-pocketed Sculthorpe Pants.  Layer a Tarlee under your Torrens Box Top or winterize your Nullarbor Cami or Dress by popping a Tarlee Turtleneck underneath!
