I can’t believe I’ve made a t-shirt! The pattern is the Weekender Sunshine Top from HotPatterns and the fabric was bought at John Lewis. This was my first time sewing with knits (I used a ball point needle) and I didn’t find this project particularly easy… the pattern is well drafted but it’s written for people who already know how to sew clothes — luckily I came across this illustrated step-by-step guide. When I make this t-shirt again I’m going to correct the gathering (I think it should be concentrated in the middle and not so much on the sides… I don’t like that strange puckering under the arms). But I’m happy with the result and I feel I’ve conquered yet another sewing challenge!
