What materials did you use? Cotton jersey with lycra.

What are you most proud of? The neckline. I have never made a t-shirt before and thought I would have problems but thanks to Meg's instructions it went on without a hitch.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is amazing how easy and quick they are to make - I will be making lots more.

Thanks for the tips about fabric shops CraftyNHmom, I had a look and there are some really nice patterns there. The problem with over here would be shipping costs as jersey is so heavy and also customs duty on packages over a certain amount. I might email them about it though.

I agree the color suits you. Did you find the tee easy to make? I bought material to day and needles, stretch elastic and such. I still need to put the pattern together. Your tee has a lovely fit to it.

Thanks. Yes, I found it very easy to make, especially putting the sleeves in which I thought might be tricky. You will enjoy making this and all your other knit clothes I'm sure. Looking forward to seeing your t-shirt.

great job..love knits..signed up the class myself..have a serger..but just want some more tips to handle this pesky fabric..each knit is different..am working with a matte jersey right now....it has a mind of its own...drapes gorgeous though...but like working with sand...it just keeps moving!

You are right about each knit being different. This one was quite stable when I sewed it but have just finished one that is exactly like the fabric you described. It was sliding all over when I was trying to sew it and I had to hold it together with my fingers every inch or so. It does give better drape though. Look forward to seeing yours.

I need to make some of those. I love 3/4 sleeves. Yours looks perfect.

Thank you, they are really easy to make and best of all there is some gorgeous jersey fabric to buy.

You have done so many nice t-shirts and blouses Lynne. This one match the garden flowers (nasturtium?) perfect.

Ha! I never noticed before, it really does blend in with the nasturtiums :)
