With long- and short-sleeve options and a choice of adding double ruffles, this T-shirt can showcase your most beautiful jersey fabrics, or your favorite applique patterns! Are you anxious about sewing with knits? Have no worries! Included in this pattern is a 10-page, fully illustrated section of how-tos and tips, so you can sew knits like a pro! This is a closer-fitting tee, so please see measurement charts in the photo section before beginning. :) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS See chart in the photo section for measurements

Supplies Needed

  • Fabric: 58"-60"- (1.5m) wide jersey with at least 25% stretch (I demonstrate how to measure stretch percentage in the tutorial section). For the double-ruffle tee, use a sturdier jersey knit or an interlock, so that the weight of the ruffles won't stretch the tee too much..
  • 12m - 18m: 1/2 yd (.46m)
  • 2T-5T: 5/8 yd (.57m)
