Making a t-shirt
One of the easiest projects I have ever made. Yet it was the one I thought was going to be impossible.
I love Kwik-Sew patterns
This is so vintage.
Basically all the patterns are pretty much the same. The newest patterns have a drop shoulder that I really like.
There is a front, a back and sleeves and that is all there is: Pretty darn easy.
But what if you misplace the neckline pattern, then what?
That is pretty simple also, measure the neckline of the shirt. Then figure out 2/3 of that measurement for the length, I go about 5 inches for the width.
I like my neckband to finish about 4" wide.
When you have the length, sew the neckband together to form a circle. Divide the shirt and neckband in quarters.
Match your quarter marks, on the neckband to the quarter marks on the shirt. I usually place my neckband seam in the back.
Sew, matching pins, it will require a bit of stretching between pins but that is what you want. When you finish that seam, press and do a top stitch.
Just like that you have a t-shirt.
