WOW! The feedback from last week’s pants sew-along on YouTube has been so motivating to me. I’m thrilled to have such amazing support. I knew that it would take me a long time to learn how to record my own videos after my husband’s passing (and I’m still learning), but I have to say that I’m really proud of myself. We can learn anything if we will just try. Thank you for your support.
Are you ready for another sew-along? Today, I have a DIY T-Shirt Sew-Along for you, using Burda 6910. This is the second one I’ve made, and I really love it. You can see the first one HERE. It’s an easy project for beginners and I walk you through all the steps in the sew-along video.
There were a couple of comments about the last sew-along, regarding pattern sizing. There is a lot of conversation happening in the sewing community right now in terms of pattern companies being more size inclusive. While a few have increased their sizing, there is still much work to be done.
If you need a size larger than 20 for this pattern, I would suggest grading up to the size you need, or searching for a similar pattern and following along. I forgot to mention that in this video, but will try to remember for the next one. You could even use a dress pattern that has ruching on the sides and shorten it to a t-shirt length.
There is a class on mybluprint.com called, CREATE ANY SIZE: PATTERN GRADING FOR SEWERS that teaches how to grade patterns up to larger sizes or down to smaller sizes. It’s a membership site, so you would have to sign up to take view the classes. I hope this helps.
Have a Happy 4th of July!!! Enjoy the sew-along. Click HERE to watch.
