I finished a very quick sew this week- the Lark t-shirt by the Grainline Studio.
I’ve written a tutorial for Minerva Crafts that takes you through how to sew your first t-shirt. I think this is a great pattern for a foray into sewing with jersey.
Some notes for next time:
- Be more careful with notching- the seam allowances are tiny, presumably this pattern is intended more for an overlocker
- Removing 3″ from the body gave me a tee that hits right on the hip
- Overall the size 8 fits me just as well as any RTW shirt. It would take a lot of wizardry (i.e. FBA and moving between sizes) to improve the fit, and I don’t think it would make enough of a difference to be worth it. I’m happy.
- 1m of fabric is plenty for a short-sleeved version
Pattern: Lark by the Grainline Studio
