Admittedly there is nothing very glamorous about making Tshirts, but I was surprised at how hard it is to make a Tshirt. Yes, it’s easy to make one. Very easy even. But not if you want to get it right. I drafted my own pattern and it took me a lot of time to get it to the point where I was happy with it. I’d share it with you but my laptop’s hard drive crashed and I’ve lost it :( Fortunately I still have the paper version of which these were made.
Once you have a pattern that suits you, making Tshirts is easy, except for one thing: the neckline. Oh boy the neckline is a pain in the neck. I still have a lot to learn before I’ll be able to make the perfect V-neck, but I’ve made a lot of progress already, and if I make a couple of dozen more of these I think I might just get it right.
As for the moment Brussels is covered under a blanket of snow, it’s a petty I won’t be able to show these any time soon.
