ok, these are the first shirts that i have made from scratch and actually turned out okay. yay! not much more to say:

purple short sleeved t-shirt:

Reddish/purple tank top that was going to be a short- sleeved shirt but failed in the process. turned out good though


i just traced one my pre-existing shirts for the pattern, both of the fabrics are stretchy knits from Joanns.

thanks for looking, comments/criticism appreciated Smiley

a positive attitude may not improve the situation, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

both really nice! how did you do the neck line for the tshirt? I keep trying, but it never turns out right.

Thank you for the comments!
for the neckline it took me awhile to get it right, but i drew a pencil line how i wanted it to look and then cut it leaving about a 1.5-inch seam allowance. then fold the seam allowance in and pin. i dont really know any other way to explain it, so sorry if that was unclear.
