You are currently viewing DIY T-SHIRT SEW-ALONG


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 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.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Anita, I pray that the earthquake was not close to where you & your family live. Praying for those who are & have been affected.

    Hi Anita! I have been trying hard to get my friend to tune into your sew along. I’ve been sewing for 20 years I really enjoy watching how other people work their magic.

    Love your tee shirt tutorial! I am self taught and am sure have missed out on a lot of techniques. Your video is very easy to understand each step, but stays engaging. Thankyou!

    Anita, I went to two Joann Fabric stores in Maryland and they did not have the pattern……

    Hi Anita, I will be looking at the video. The top is cute. But I am sad that you keep wearing that beautiful white skirt with some of your outfits and I still can’t find that skirt. ?? ?

    1. Anita Morris

      Rosalind!??? I know! I need to recreate this skirt and do a sew along.

      1. Rosalind D

        Yes, please do!!!

      2. Lynette R Patrice

        Yessss!!!! I was going to ask you about doing a skirt. Although, your older tutorials are skirts.

    ?Hi Anita. I just watched the video. So cute and so versatile. LOVE, love, love the t-shirt and I will be making that. I’m so glad the tutorials are back. Thank you so much.

    1. Anita Morris

      Hey Peggy! Thank you so much for watching. I’m glad to be back too.

    My Deepest Condolences to you and your family. I love the t-shirt ruching video. You did an excellent job. ☺

    First, I always love your makes. They truly look better than RTW. As an FYI on the Craftsy/Bluprint class you mentioned: if folks don’t want to join, they can buy the DVD only for that class (right now it’s $15).

    1. Anita Morris

      Awesome Deon! Thank you so MUCH for letting me know. I thought so, but wasn’t sure. When I went to the site to look, I didn’t see the option. I’ll go look more throughly since you’ve confirmed it. Now that I know, I’ll definitely let everyone know next time. Thanks again.

    Hi Anita, I am thrilled that I just found your blog and you tube channel today. You are a beautiful woman and i love your fashion flair and all your tips and videos about sewing. I’m so glad that I found you. My mother taught me to sew when I was 10 years old (50 years ago) and my first project was a yellow plaid mini shirt. Joy fills my heart when I am sewing and it gives me a special time to pray and talk with God. I am sure that you have been a blessing to so many people because God’s love shines through you like the morning sun. God bless you.

      Robin, you’re making my heart smile, sister! Thank you so much for stopping by here to leave feedback. I totally understand the joy you feel when sewing. Me toooooo!!!!! Happy to have you join me. God bless you too.

    Wow! Anita, the t-shrit is adorable. I always love your fabrics. That really makes or breaks a garment! Is there a link to this fabric?
    I look forward to watching your tutorial sew-along.
    Have a Happy and safe 4th!

    1. Anita Morris

      Thank. you so much, Yvette! Unfortunately, I don’t have a link to this particular fabric because I don’t remember where I purchased it from. ? It’s been in my fabric collection for a while. I did link to fabric suggestions in the video on YouTube though. Happy 4th of July!
