Sewing Self-Drafted T-Shirts

Sewing Level:Intermediate if using coverstitch but these are great beginning knit styles- just use zig zag for your seams (long and not wide) and hems (basic zig zag size).

Fabric:  Scoop Neck T is a soft interlock. Dropped shoulder T is a hemp, cotton, spandex.

I made size and View (if applicable): My own

My mods: See Description...

Description: These were sewn from my self-drafted patterns. Links are provided below. I drafted the Scoop Neck T from the Colette Patterns Moneta Dress bodice. I then revised it based on my prototype and created a few versions.

Notes:The Scoop Neck TShirt after my revisions turned out perfectly. For my Boxy Drop-Shoulder version I think I'll bring up the neck about an 1" all the way around. I would also consider making the sleeve hem circumference a bit larger but not much. I like the shape as is.
