i REALLY like this pattern. i’ve found that when i make the shirt in cotton, i need to cut the pattern a little bit larger in the bust. but when using these old tshirts, the size 36 pattern fits perfectly. with the black & white shirt, the original tshirt was a men’s L, but it wasn’t wide enough so i added the white. but for the green & yellow shirt, the green was a men’s XL and the cut was perfect.
2 other great things about this shirt – it totally covers boob/armpit fat and dubs well as a maternity shirt (the black & white one is a gift for a friend who just made it to week 30!)
one day soon i’ll have to make this into a dress!
