T-Shirt Time

image

This is my first completed T-shirt from the Craftsy.com sewing with knits course. I really like the way it turned out. I made a small adjustment with the sleeves that I didn’t need to make so next time I will eliminate that. (I thought because of the size of my arms I would need to add a little more width, but that only made the sleeve look a little off).

The fabric is from a stash I purchased from a friend awhile ago, so I’m really not sure of what the content is. I do like the feel and thickness of the knit. It seems as if most knits from the big box fabric stores today are very thin.

I did make an adjustment to the bust area. I my recently acquired book “The Complete Photo Guide to Perfect Fitting” mentioned that most patterns are made for standard bust sizes and if your bust do not fall within this measurement adjustments are necessary. I still need a little practice in this area, but I am sure with my dependence on T-shirts I will be making this one again.
