Shirts

I took this class about 4 years go for the yoga pants. The pants didn't really work as I used too streatchy material and the pants was HUGE. I have been looking for the perfect t-shirt pattern and finally went back to Meg McElwee's pattern. I loved it!!! I made my first one in about an hour and then decided to make another one for a friend. On the second shirt I screened a Day of the Dead image. I used soft scrub as ink so it bleached out the color of the material and makes a nice soft image on the shirt. The best thing about this shirt is the material is a bed sheet that I found at a thrift store and it's so very soft. I was able to make 3 tops so far from one sheet and plan to make one more with long sleeves for the winter months. Simple easy pattern, fits nicely.
