When I was walking around Joann's looking for knit fabric for my Bomber Jacket tutorial, I came across this AMAZING fabric. I love these light, airy shirts so naturally... I had to buy it. This fabric was already on sale for $6.00 a yard (down from $10.00).
Taking a loose fitting shirt that I already owned, I laid it out on a flat sheet of paper to start tracing the outline.
I made a front and back piece. The back is going to be a little higher than the front. Make sure you do not curve your pattern like I did. It will make the shirt fit in an awkward way.
My pattern is 19in long.
And 19in wide. (Again, I would add a little more to the sides. You can always take the side in!
Here is the upside-down look of the sleeve pattern. This one was quiet fun to try to figure out. If you are having trouble with your sleeve, keep cutting out paper patterns and trying them on!
And here is the video of what the shirt looks like completed! MY computer started messing up so the audio is a bit off, but I wanted to show y'all the final because I love the way this shirt looks!
If you have any questions, let me know in the comments!
