Sewing Lessons: Knit T-Shirts for Everybody and Every Body!


This is a step-by-step breakdown of the the Knit T-shirts for Everybody class that we run at Fabrications. 

The great thing about learning how to make a t-shirt is that a t-shirt is a t-shirt is a t-shirt. Once you've made one, you can make all the variations and adaptations!

The Grainline Studio Lark is a t-shirt. 

But so is the Jalie Nicole Shift Dress, Tunic and Tee

And the Deer and Doe Givre Dress and T-Shirt

And the True Bias Nikko Top and Dress

And the Cashmerette Pembroke Dress and Tunic

And the Megan Nielsen Jarrah Sweater!

I'm going to break this down into lessons: 

(Added later: this all got to be more complicated than I anticipated. Every time I'd start writing a blog post, I'd realize that I needed to go back and write another basic techniques post first! Here's hoping we can actually get to the t-shirt!)

Lesson One: Sizing and Grading a Pattern

Lesson Two: Cutting out a Pattern

Lesson Three: Sewing with Knits and Sewing the Shoulder Seams

Lesson Four: Inserting the Neckband

Lesson Five: Adding Sleeves. Or Not. 

Lesson Six: Sewing the Side-Seams and Hemming. 

As I add each lesson, the titles above will become live links. Okay? Let's get started!
