T.Shirts Galore!! Burda 9/2012 123

Antrim, Co Antri...






I love this pattern so much, it’s so versatile easy looks good and you can customise it. I saw saki’s fab versions so i decided to give it a go. its now my favourite t.shirt pattern so far. i can’t recommend it highly enough. I’ve made six so far. four for moi one for mum and one for my mate but i’m planning more. I want to make more with lace and maybe colour blocking instead of leather inserts. I also want to play more with the neckline back and front. they take about an hour for me to make as well so they’re a great stress buster as well lol x

Material Notes

leftover pieces of cotton jersey leather and lace
