Easy t-shirt

How to sew a t-shirt for your doll, using the shirt pattern. It's quick and easy, you'll see.

Just like with the one piece, the difficulty here is to sew with knit fabric (if you're not use to it). Since the t-shirt is small and the seams are 5 mm, I recommend a knit that isn't too thin or stretchy (your machine might try to eat it!). If your machine does it, you can sew with a light zig-zag to make it easier and for a bit more stretch.

  1. place the shirt pattern on your knit (2 ply right sides facing)

  2. trace the outline

  3. shorten the sleeve by 5 mm and the hem by 1 cm by tracing new lines

  4. cut the t-shirt

  5. sew one shoulder

  6. pin the neckline 5 mm inside and sew

  7. sew the second shoulder

  8. fold the sleeve 5 mm inside and sew

  9. sew both sides of the t-shirt

  10. clip under the arms

  11. pin the hem and sew (1 cm)

  12. turn your t-shirt inside out and voilà!
