MICKY slim-fit tee | long sleeve, short sleeve & turtleneck options

We love this tee sewn with long sleeves and the turtleneck option for layering in the winter, or sewn with short sleeves for the summer.  Sew in one fabric for a classic look or add in a second fabric for the pocket, sleeves, or elbow patches to snazz it up!

If you would like to provide more room at the tummy, sew a size larger and simply shorten the sleeves. Enjoy sewing this shirt!Your Zierstoff Team
