What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the way the V-neck came out along with the top stitching around the V. It came out so great!!!! I love it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This shirt is really low so you may consider raising the V up some so you aren't "hanging out." The next time I make this, I will do that for sure and also I will make the sleeves about 1 inch longer and wider for more comfort. This was very easy to do and so much fun!!! The photos were taken prior to me hemming the sleeves and bottom of the t-shirt. Also, I used a walking foot for the whole project and wouldn't be without it for sewing with knits.

thanks for the heads up about the"V" being really low, haven't got to that part of the class yet so good to know. Nice job on the "V".

You are welcome Kamloops....I wore this t-shirt yesterday and was getting so annoyed because I had to keep lifting the V up, grrrrrr! LOL. I'm going to make another one soon and will be moving that sucker up about 1.5" and adding 1" to each sleeve width...other than that, it's a great t-shirt! Can't wait to see yours!

I love this t-shirt, you did a great job. I'm going to make one and thanks for the advise about modifing the V...

Psherman, you may want to also lower while at the same time enlarging the arm sync. It's a bit high. Remember to also enlarge the sleeve the same amount so it fits. Can't wait to see yours!!!

wow! The "V" is beautiful. They are soooooo hard to get right. Can't wait to get time to work on mine.

Thank you Dorinne!!! It had to be beginners luck or something, lol. The second time I did it (had to rip out the first one) it came out perfect!
