Description

When I saw this teacup fabric in the sales bin at my local fabric store, it just begged to be made into an awesome t-shirt. Sewing with jersey turned out to be a challenge for someone as impatient as me. Thank God I had chosen a simple pattern. Everything was straight-forward and simple. The only problem I had was the neckline, which ended up being too small for my ginormous head, so I had to open up the shoulder seems to make more room. The neckline still isn’t very nice, it bunches up in various places and overall, the shirt’s too tight, but I’m okay with it. It’s my first jersey project, after all, and the next time I’ll just do a bigger version.

For more pictures and other project, take a look at my blog!

    Your shirt looks nice on you. Once you figure out how to sew with jersey, it is very rewarding; just don’t rush it. :-)
