Brooklyn, New Yo...
Size 44, for some reason. It’s too big (especially in the armhole). I think I must’ve been feeling fat the day I cut the 44 and wanting a t-shirt that isn’t clinging to every curve. I don’t seem to have many loose long sleeve T shirts, so this fits the bill perfectly, although next time I’ll make a 42.
This was the first knit thing I made with my new serger (Brother 1034D). I used seam tape on the shoulder seam for stability. I followed the instructions, but I think next time I will sew teh sleeve in flat and then seam the under arm and the side seam in one pass. That way I can trim it even more if I want.
Oh, I think I lengthened the sleeve, but then forgot to measure the correct hem allowance so the sleeves are bit long. I already snapped the sleeve hem threads so I think the double needle hem is not very stretchy. I think this would be a good candidate for a tubular cuff.
