This is an intermediate pattern with various things going on at once, so you'll want to have a good grasp on knitting to make this pattern.
Notes From the Designer:
•A short-sleeved sweater makes a great piece for transitional weather. V-necks are flattering on just about everyone, so you don't have to worry about an uncomplimentary neckline with this one, and can just enjoy the knitting! Stripe two or more colors for a fun, preppy look, or stick with one color that can be worn with anything. There are plenty of ways to make this pattern your own!
•There is no waist shaping for this pattern. Knit the size closest to your normal bust size for 0-2" of positive ease. If you want a more fitted look, try going down a size. For a looser fit, knit one size larger than normal.
•One of my favorite books is Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. I named this pattern after the two eldest Bennet sisters because I feel like it combines Jane's sweetness with Elizabeth's "take no prisoners" approach to life. I've also been itching to name something Eliza Jane for awhile.

Well written and works up beautifully!
I have never knitted a shirt but this pattern is where I will start the challenge. Now which colors should I pick? I am so excited to begin.
It is a lovely pattern, the only thing I noticed is that the instructions for the corrugated ribbing are not exactly correct--it does not tell you which side of the garment to hold your working thread. I am a fairly experienced knitter but had never done corrugated ribbing before. I actually had to rely on my years of experience to figure out how to hold the yarn so it wouldn't show on the front. Even though it states it isn't a beginner pattern I feel the instructions should be written to include this detail. Other than than I am enjoying it so far. I have not finished it yet.
I downloaded Eliza Jane because I liked the simple T-shirt styling. I will be making it all in one color rather than striped because of my body type.
This is a very cute tee pattern - a staple of my summer wardrobe. The only thing is - there is no schematic or measurements other than chest size. A schematic should ALWAYS be provided by the designer.
