What materials did you use? very soft thin stretch knit--polyester blend

What are you most proud of? I am a fairly experienced seamstress. But I have never really gotten into knits! I find that some of my fit problems have disappeared with the knits--things that I had a problem with in cottons, like slope shoulders and small bust. The stretchiness of the knits molds to my body better. I used too thin and too cheap of a knit for these T's. I m even wearing a tank under the v-neck. So I will consider these more practice pieces.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient and try out your stitches and hemming on practice pieces first. Cut your pattern pieces as accurately as possible. A rotary cutter is great!

Great necklines. I now enjoy sewing with knits and found this class so liberating. All those great looking knit fabrics wont scare us.

Looks fantastic! None of us will ever have to buy a t-shirt again :)
