Fall Sewing: The T-Shirt

Well, I can check off the first project off my fall sewing list.


Sometimes, you just need a basic t-shirt to pull an outfit together. This item will work with a few things in my wardrobe like this jumper and this top


It is my second version using OOP McCall's 7946, which is now my go-to TNT pullover top pattern. 


My favourite part of this top is the neckline. I like that it sits up at collarbone level. And it is really comfortable. 

The fabric is a light-weight polyester knit. It was pre-treated with a tumble in the washing machine and dryer and it handled the pre-treatment process well. The seams were all sewn using a walking foot and knit stitch. The shoulder seam and hems were treated with fusible interfacing tape before being machine-stitched.  


The Stats:  

Fabric:   1.4 metres 

Fusible Tape:  1.2 metres

Pattern:  McCall's 7946

Additional Tools & Supplies:  Sewing machine, serger, walking foot, tweezers, scissors, threads, thread clippers, pins, cutting table, iron, ironing board, coffee x 2, and some good tunes.  

Happy Sewing!
