I promised my boyfriend I would make him a shirt:)

Now I'm looking for a shirt pattern that looks like this:

I would have bought that one if the size had been bigger.
I've searched on several sites, but there are not a lot off patterns for men.

Does anyone have any idea where I could find something like this?

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help with pattern needed, I'm very confused! on: September 13, 2006 09:30:51 AM
Hi, I'm making a skirt (simplicity 4966) And it was going pretty oke. But then I had to make the Facing on top of the skirt.
This is what the manual says:

To EDGE FINISH unnotched edge...stitch 1/4"(6mm) from edge, turn under along stitching and stitch OR zig-zag over the edge OR overlock/serge over the edge.

Huh Ok maybe it's because I'm dutch, but what are they talking about? What an unnotched edge? and what do they mean by "turn under along stitching"

I hope someone can help me, I really want to finish my skirt:)
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My first skirt! Brown half circle skirt - *Update: Tutorial added* on: August 20, 2006 02:50:42 PM
I just made my first skirt, I'm so happy!
It took me about a day to make it.

What do you think?

I have made a tutorial, I'm a beginner so it may not be the best way to do it. If you have suggestions please let me know!

Tutorial for skirt with lining:

Note: Colored fabric on these pictures is the right side of the fabric.
Note 2: I'm dutch, so there can be some mistakes in the text.

Make a pattern using a measuring tape.

tw = waist.
so the first circle is 1/3 of your waist minus 1 cm.

Hold the beginning of the measuring tape at the black dot and turn the end to make a nice circle.
Cut the pattern out of folded fabric. Keep on side at the fold.
Add 2 cm at the waist and open side, add 4 at the bottom.

Sew from the bottom till the zipper. Turn it around and iron in your folds from bottom to top.

Sew in the zipper. I pin the zipper first to make the fabric overlap the zipper. Then I turned the skirt and handstitched the zipper clossest peace of fabric. Remove the pins and sew!

Now make an inner skirt (the same way as you made the outer skirt). Sew it on the zipper the same way, but then on the other side and further away from the zipper. This picture is how it looks after sewing, if you want to sew the zipper to the innerskirt you have to have the wrong sides out.

To make the top put the skirt inside out, with the right sides to eachother and put a waistband in the middle.
I pinned it, handstitched it and then sewed it.
Turn the dress and sew over the innerskirt and the waistband.

To finish the bottom I folded the 4 cm twice and pinned, handstitched and sewed.
Finish off your seams with a zig zag stitch.


17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Update 3! Zumba the Fluffy Monster, Xorg and Skweeby. on: August 13, 2006 10:47:25 AM
I bought a sewing machine last week and this is one off the first things I made, very inspired by the monster tutorial from nina: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=5843.0 . it looked like so much fun:)

His name is Zumba and he is very scary! (well that's what he thinks)

Bleep... bleep.... Please surrender to my alien love hug!... bleep...
This is Xorg, an alien looking for some hugs.

I made another one! Can't help myself. Wink
This is skweeby and he is very hungry sea monster!

Well I've showed them to my friends and there are all telling me to try selling them. I was looking around on the internet and was thinking of a price between 30 and 40 dollars. They are big (16 inch).
What do you girls think, is this a good price?
