What materials did you use? cotton jersey provided by Craftsy, finally felt I was ready. Made the small, with one inch shaved from sleeves, and a bit more taken in at back to remove some of the excess material in the mid back area. Length as per pattern. Tightened cross chest, and added elastic as well as contrast band under bust area. Fits pretty good. Looks comfy, very wearable. More in the future, one for me!

Do you find the knit fabric pills? I am having a hard time with knits pilling, and would like to know if you are having the same issues. I shop at Fabricland (Fabricville in New Brunswick).

hmmm, i do shop fabricland, but the knits are always "ends", and "unknown fibres"...that said, the ONLY problem with pilling I have had was their Ponte knit...go figure, the expensive $30/m...when I mentioned it to them they said maybe it was the high rayon content...but I wouldn't know. I have bought lots of tshirt material and wear them endlessly, no pilling
