Description

This is a shirt that I made last weekend. First I started with a XXL t-shirt that didn’t fit at all and laid it flat on a table. Then I used a template that I have to cut it down to size. The collar and shoulder seams pretty much stay the same and but the template helps me to cut a new armseye, side seams, and hem. For the sleeves the original hem stays intact while the template tells me how to cut out the rest of the piece. For the construction I just serge the whole shirt back together and use a cover stitch for the hem. By itself, the shirt was awfully plain so I decided to add some cross stitch embroidery. First I printed a special cross stitch grid onto a sheet of Transfer Eze. Both of these items are available in my online shop. Then I peeled the paper backing off the Transfer Eze and stuck it onto my shirt in the location where I wanted the embroidery to be. After that I just started sewing the pattern, which is included free with the cross stitch grid, onto my shirt with cotton embroidery floss. When I was done I just soaked the shirt in some water and the transfer eze dissolved completely. I also made the pink thermal shirt that I have on underneath in the picture. I used another pattern for that shirt that has raglan sleeves, a rib knit collar, and rib knit cuffs. I was also serged together and cover stitched around the hem and collar.
