First T-shirt

 I wish this T fit as well as it looks in the pic.

I have sewn since I was a teen, but have focused the past couple decades on making really cool quilts.  My new-found attention to garment making is a little disturbing.



I used the Looney Toon fabric for a muslin,.  Unfortunately, Butterick 5215 has a 17" neckline that is roughly the right size for an armhole.

The whole DRAMA is at my blog.  Click to read.  Please use the restroom first.  I don't want to be held responsible for your cleaning bill.

  1. Hi Marjorie. I have to laugh at myself because I was thinking how I would have never thought to use that fabric but it is soooo cute. Then I read further to find out that it was a muslin. Lol. I would definitely wear that on a relaxed day. ;)

      I was thinking that it would become my PJ shirt...but it may be passed on to my smaller daughter.
