Ive made some more shirts and hoodies!

This one is one of the first patterns I learned to make myself, I havent made anything with those kind of pockets in a while.

I had plans for it too turn out a certain way but I made a mistake and had to change half way through, I love the results though. It has a bubble shirt and the top is self lined.. I usually opt for band hems and  im not sure why..

This one is an experiment of sorts, i just started cuting and sewing with no real plans, its pretty simple. fabric covered buttons, yay!

my second time making cap sleeves.. I had never thought about making cap sleeves until my crafty roommate suggested it!

this one should go into a the reconstruction section i guess, but ill keep it all together in the interest of not posting tooo many new topics! I found this awesome panda shirt at a thrift store with the same image on the back and front. I cut the front out in a square for the front of the hoodie and cut the back out for the hood. The hoodie doesnt have side seams but instead i made some wrap around pockets.. which are hard to see in the picture.

Wow, all of these are awesome! My favorite is the one with the cap sleeves. It's so simple but it's still super cute. I love it!

Ooooh! its all so pretty! I like the red and purple and black one best, but its a close call between all of them Smiley Do you use a serger? Whenever I sew with jersey it always goes all wiggly and stretched...
And nice moustache!

ya, i use a serger. Every once in a while jersey will get all wiggly on a serger too.. i try and not use fabric thats REALLLY stretchy.. or if i do i try and pair it with something thats alot less stretchy which seems to help. I dont know how some people topstitch their shirts.. as soon as i do that it gets wiggly for sure!
