La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles is where the the LA BREA t-shirt gets its name. The LA BREA pattern has intriguing details yet it will also satisfy your "basic tee" needs!
Both woven and knit fabrics can be used to create a LA BREA, creating a totally different appearance. French seams and bias facing are used to neatly hide any exposed raw edges. Not yet familiar with these? No need to worry; the instructions will walk you through each step easily.
View A is most suited to light- to mid-weight knits, without additional lycra or elastane, such as 100% cotton, linen, hemp or modal knits, etc. If you'd prefer to use a stretch knit (eg. 95% cotton, 5% elastane), size down 1 or 2 sizes. View A requires between 80cm to 170cm (7/8yard to 1-7/8yard), depending upon fabric width and pattern size. Specific requirements are included in the pattern instructions, as well as in a table at the end of this product description.
View B is most suited to light- to mid-weight wovens, such as cotton, linen, rayon, silk, double gauze, etc. The drape of the fabric will change the look of the final garment. View B requires between 70cm to 150cm (3/4yard to 1-5/8yard), depending upon fabric width and pattern size. Specific requirements are included in the pattern instructions, as well as in a table at the end of this product description.
As the same pattern pieces work for both views, feel free to get creative and mix up the features!
