Ultimate T-Shirt

What was your inspiration? I have granddaughters and like to sew for them but knew very little about sewing knit fabric so I thought I would learn a lot from this class...and I did!

The Ultimate T-Shirt: Fitting & Construction

  • 4-way stretch knit
  • not the best choice of material for a first "sewing knits" project. Was a bit like trying to sew quicksand!

Q&A with sewinginthesouth

Davesmom asked:
The t-shirt looks great. How does it fit?
sewinginthesouth answered:
Thanks you! Fit was not great...because I did not follow all of the directions correctly. I added the "insurance inch" to side seams but not to sleeve...oops. I also forgot to measure arm hole length and make an adjustment there, that would have helped. But all was not lost because the t-shirt fit my daughter-in-law! I think I can make a better fitting t-shirt next time.
Jules12345 asked:
I like what you did with the neckline.
sewinginthesouth answered:
Thanks!
