A new T pattern and Burda 7188 on me!

Finished product up first!!!!!  I got my husband to take a photo of me before work this morning.  This was taken around 6:15AM or so and honestly, I can’t believe how awake I look!  Ha ha!


Thoughts on the shirt after wearing it a day:  ehhh, about the same. It’s ok, but not my favorite.  I did feel like I was in pajamas, but it looks good enough.  The fabric is actually warmer than I realized it would be so that was uncomfortable when I had to take a hike outside to another building.  But…that will be a nice thing come winter.

In other sewing news, I made a muslin from the Hotpattern plain and fitted T tonight.  This is the older version of the pattern, and I have a couple of fit issues to work out…but that is why one makes a muslin!

I DESPERATELY need a broad shoulder adjustment and I need to lengthen it a few more inches.  I’m going to try those two adjustments, do another quick muslin and see what I think.  There are some weird issues going on around the neckline, but I suspect those are from the poor shoulder fit.  Yes, this is a recycled T from a family reunion!  🙂  I’m going to have to look in the t stash to see what else I can reuse. I rarely wear the baggy type Ts, so I would love to have a pattern that I can use to consistently make them fitted!


Happy Sewing!

    Buy an inexpensive men’s undershirt with sleeves that fits your shoulders. Take in the sides until you have the fit you want. You can then use this as a pattern.
