T-shirt with long sleeves

Added Feb 19, 2012

Rotterdam, Neth...






this project was just an exercise to become a better friend with my lockmachine. So I used a very cheap fabric from the market for 1 euro/meter. Long live polyester :-) I am happy with the fitting and this time the neckline came out very good. Now I appreciate my lockmachine much more. I made the pattern with the Müller&Sohn system.

      With these German skills you are ready for your trip to Berlin!. I will be in Berlin between 21 of may till 29 of may. Maybe we can hold an international burda sewing conference with Ralf. :-)

    Looks great!!!

    But also here, lenght is missing in the fronts… it is because of your very male and prominent chest… same issue on my!

    But great workmanship!

    edit: Thank you for putting some photo of the sleevehead! :)

      mercie bien, the broderie stands for the names of my huband and me and the year we met on the beach.

    great job, the neckline looks very good and not a bad result for that price. Fingers crossed for your friendship with the overlocker!

      thanks for the compliments! Yes, it’s just a matter of practice with my coverlock. :-)

    Neckline looks great!

    Did you use a twin needle for the hem? I found the best way to do the hem if you dont have a coverstitch machine is to either. 1. Do a medium zig zag stitch, it doesn’t pucker up the fabric and lookg great from a small distance. 2. Or get some iron on stabilizer and use it both back and front when you do a twin stitch. 3. Or Serge the egde and thenm use a blind hem with your sewing machine. The hem is almost invisble then.

      thank you for the hints. Yes I used a twin needle for the hem, although I have a coverstitch on my lockmachine.

    Hallo Martin! Da ich mich in englisch sehr kuemmerlich ausdruecke,schreibe ich in deutsch,it’s ok.?Zuerst zu deinem wunderbaren Hemd mit den hellblauen Garnituren,so einzigartig und geschmackvoll,ich beneide dich um deine Kunst,vor allem jene,die Schnittmuster selbst zu zeichnen.Ich habe mir das Buch von Mueller und Sohn gekauft,aber so ganz ohne eine Hilfe von aussen werde ich wohl nicht auskommen,ausserdem besitze ich ein anderes Buch von der Mailaender Modeschule “Burgo”,ich moechte nur allzugerne einen Kurs besuchen,den Wunsch werde ich mir bald erfuellen, dann mache ich dir Konkurenz,(Spass).Deine Overlock hat aber schoene Saume gemacht,schoen auch dei gesticktes Logo,bravissimo!! Gruesse dich LUISA

      Vielen Dank Luisa, ganz ohne Hilfe schaffe ich auch nicht alle Schnittmuster. Ein Kurs an einer Modeschule in Mailand, das ist doch Traum! Viel Erfolg!

    Wow, such a great fit and the neckline looks great. Very good fitting, and that’s such a hard thing to do. Is this from a bought pattern or did you make it yourself?

      Thank you Joost, the pattern is selfmade. I redrawn it for a better fitting and this is the result. The neckline wasn’t as scaring as I thought. Now I will do T-shirts more often. But jackets and coats will always be my favourite! I like the challange.
