Classic Black Tee : Making the Pattern & Sewing the Neckband

Greetings!

After this experience, I will never look at t-shirts the same. I found myself studying every t-shirt I come across in the stores. I am now curious of the quality and the finishes of a t-shirt;)

This video shows how I created the sewing pattern for my classic black tee. Since I am taking the time to sew a t-shirt I can buy almost anywhere, I wanted to make sure the fit was exactly how I wanted and incorporate quality elements. I studied the tees I had for many years and compared them to the lesser quality ones. I made minor alterations to the t-shirt I liked and made the sewing pattern from it.

So have you made a t-shirt before? How was your experience sewing it?  Well, I hope you got inspired to create something EXTRAordinary.
