There is nothing I like to wear more than loose and comfy knit tees and dresses. Lately, I have sewn myself a few new tops and dresses. (I’ve got quite a collection of knit fabrics and figured I better start using them.)
I’m so glad the Dolman-style sleeves are so popular now, because they are ridiculously easy to sew. (And super flattering – at least on me, you can check out my Anywhere Dress Tutorial I made last year using this same self-drafted pattern.)
- 1 to 1.5 yards of 54+ inch wide knit fabric.
- t-shirt to trace
- Paper to trace pattern on. (wrapping paper or freezer paper.)
- fabric marker
- pencil, ruler, iron, scissors, and other basic sewing supplies
For the bottom band, measure the bottom edge of the shirt, and add 1/2 inch. Cut 2 strips of fabric 6 inches by the width of your measurement above.
Right sides together, sew these strips together, using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. so you have one long strip.
To cut out the front neckline, fold one of the fabric pieces in half. Fold your original tee in half and line up the middle and shoulders of the original tee and the new shirt front. Use a fabric marker and trace the neckline right onto the fabric
Step 2: Putting the T-shirt together.
Line up the front and back pieces, right sides together.
If you want to add binding to the neckline and sleeves, check out the instructions on my Anywhere Knit Dress Tutorial and skip to step 3.
That is pretty much all there is to the tee! Cute and simple…
My photography assistant for the day wanted to be in the picture too…
