i found an old t-shirt of my brothers from years ago. and considering that he's 20, i doubt he's going to a] fit into and b] want to wear a superman shirt.
so i got some plain red knit fabric and made it into a baseball tee!


front


put my hair up to show the collar. which came out kind of weird? i usually reuse old collars from tshirts, but this is the first time i made my own. anyone know why it does that?


nothing on the back.
[hey, sweet posture.]

That looks great .. i will pass along a tip for necklines .. I was told this By a fellow Talented Craftster " Cheera " I believe ... any way .. she told me to make the strip that you are using for the neckline about 1 to 2 inches shorter than the circumferance of the neckline .. and stretch it to fit as you sew .. this works great and makes them lay almost perfectly flat .. Ive tried this methood several times now and it works great .. I'm so glad she shared it with me .. and I hope it works for you !


Edit:

here is a copy of her directions .. incase mine are hard to understand

You can create freaking sweet necklines by just taking a strip of fabric about 2 inches shorter than the circumfrence of your neckline, cut to twice the width you'd like it to be, and sewn into a tube. Pin it all along the neckline, stretching slightly to accommodate it (and so it will lay flat against your body) and sew with a zig zag or a serger (I seem to recall you having a serger).


again great job on the shirt too

that makes sense too, because i usually stretch the collar when i reuse them off of shirts.
