Starting a bit early!

I was busy cutting out fabric for the KCW Challenge yesterday when I was overcome with curiosity.

I really needed to know if the pattern that I had just created worked and decided that I could justify trying it out because if it does work, then I can cut out a whole lot more to make next week!

I followed Dana Made it's tutorial for a 90 minute shirt. To be honest, I was pretty sceptical about the title, BUT I reckon that now that my pattern is created, one of these could be thrown together in about that time!

My first impression was definitely favourable. It looks pretty good doesn't it!

BUT...

... I will definitely be altering the pattern before I make any more. A combination of using flimsy material and getting my pattern slightly wrong mean that the neck gapes something rotten.

That said, once the pattern has been tweaked, I will definitely be cutting out a few more to make next week.

So this was my Creative Space. Why not hop over and see what everyone else has been up to?

Edited to add: I overcame the problem of the gaping neck, see here to find my solution!

  7. 90 minutes, THAT is pretty impressive, and its just about how long it would take me to drive to the shop to buy one and drive back!

  8. my first 90 min tee gaped at the neck like that too, the trick for me was to pull/stretch the ribbing really tight as you sew it on. once I started I made heaps of them.
