Red Knit T-Shirt

31 January 2015

Red T-ShirtDo you remember the Purple and Green Scribble T-Shirt that I made back in September 2014?  I have finally returned to this pattern and attempted to adjust it to create a more flattering t-shirt.  It might even be something that I’d dare to wear out of the house.

I had some red knit fabric in my stash that I thought I could use for this.  It was a little thinner than I’d have liked, but it was ok for another wearable toile.

I tried on the Purple and Green Scribble T-Shirt and pinned away the gaping at the arm holes and the neck line.  Then I adjusted the pattern pieces to be closer to these shapes and added some extra length.

I quickly whizzed it together with my overlocker and did some double needled hemming on my sewing machine.  Ta da!  I have another t-shirt that will never venture out of the house.  It is better than the previous one, but still not good enough for public display.  The fabric was slippery to sew and the neck line has ended up a bit skewed.

I think I’ve learned my lesson for now.  I should stick with patterns drafted by people who know what they are doing …for now anyway!
