I made a shirt!!
I was thinking, here I am making all of these skirts and dresses in November. What the hell?
I didn’t use a pattern.
I cut the pieces out of polyester knit using my sister’s shirt (the black one in the pics) as a guide.
Her top has a round-ish neckline, while I cut mine more in a V. Thus the deeper neckline.
This is another $1.95 a yard steal.
It is shiny as hell on the actual right side, so I used the wrong side.
This shirt is also VERY warm.
I didn’t even wear a sweater today, which was just as well. It’s warm and shows sweat stains well.
Also, the first sleeves I cut were comically tight!
I will take a pic tomorrow.
Seriously, doctors could use them as tourniquets!
I also learned to stretch the fabric while sewing, I busted almost the entire bottom hem getting into this the first time.
Picking out the seam was not fun at all.
Lesson: Streeeeetch a LOT while sewing.
