 I got a new fancy sewing machine for Christmas from my darling boyfriend, and it is extremely impressive. For the first time ever, I can sew stretchy fabrics with ease and without using fabric paper and/or stabilizer, woot! After resizing a few tshirts to test out all the different stitches, I managed to make my own top, from scratch! I didn't use a pattern, but I did use a fitting tshirt for the sleeves. The fabric is a stretchy knit and is from a shop in Dublin called Murphy Sheehys.

 I apologise for the quality of photos, my brain always shuts down a lot when I've finished a project  Smiley

 (By the way, in case anyone is wondering about those pants that I'm wearing, my awesome sister got me comic book pants for Christmas. Now I'm entertained no matter what part of my flat I'm in!)

Did you do the design on the front or was it already pre-printed on the fabric? In any case, I like it a lot.  Great job.

Thanks guys! The pattern was already on the fabric when I got it, I fell in love with it instantly!
