T-shirt made from the “Pete” pattern.
This is my first piece of clothing I’ve ever sewn, it came out bigger than I expected, but next time I’ll just make a small instead of a medium.
I used bright green thread on the black cotton so I could see my mistakes easier, but it turned out to look really cool at the hems.

Material Notes

Black cotton interlock; black cotton rib; green thread.

    Thanks, this is the first garment I’ve ever sewn, and the 2nd project after I started recently after 10 years of not sewing anything.

    You’re right, I like the contrasting thread. And it does not look like someone’s first attempt at sewing clothes, well done!
