Overall a pretty easy project and a cute, basic shirt – I’m planning on making more in different colors. I had some trouble with my machine wanting to eat my fabric at the hems and collar… I think I need a walking foot. The sleeve hems turned out ok, the collar I just folded over and zigzag stitched, and I didn’t hem the bottom at all. The shirt was a little too long so I cut the bottom off and it made a cute circle scarf for my cat, which I’m sure he appreciated :)
