Love this shirt so much I’m making another one this weekend! By the way…I’m NOT pregnant, I realized that the post a few days ago totally sounded that way and I swear I didn’t mean for it to. I was referring to a BIG change in surroundings. So I need to get things done before the big change…yes I’m still leaving you guys in the dark. Excited!
cotton, knit or polyester fabric – anything works!
flexible measuring tape
marking pen or chalk
1. Cut out a square of fabric to the width/height you want. Keep in mind the width will become smaller because it will be taken in. So it will actually look more rectangular in the end! Cut out the neckline to the shape you prefer (v, square, heart round) and then cut a little curve for the back neckline.
2. An inch or two from the side sew a side seam starting at the bottom of where you want the sleeve to start to the bottom. Then sew the shoulder seams together. Starting from where you want the neckline to start to the end of the sleeve.
3. Hem! Fold the bottom, sleeves, neckline in once if you don’t care for fraying or if you serge, or roll twice and hem (besting stitch the first roll I ou like!). Also, I hemmed the bottom more then the neckline and sleeves. 1/2 to 3/4 inch.
4. Done! This is what it looks like inside out.
