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



detail:


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

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.
