After I had finished Craig's hoodie, I had quite a lot of leftover fabric. I had originally bought 2.5m of this lovely grey-and-black striped cotton jersey from Spotlight. Turns out that this was stacks. Loads. Well ahem, I didn't want to fall short :) When I am making something self-drafted, for the first time; I worry so much about stuffing up somewhere along the line, and so I think I need way more fabric than I usually do. And buy accordingly.
So I reckon the hoodie only took something like 1.5m in the end.
Unfortunately the remainder was not quite enough to make a second man's Tshirt. Just a man's shirt sleeves alone take up acres of fabric... don't they! I mean, who knew? It never fails to amaze me how a man's shirt sleeves are each about as big as the front or back!
Anyhoo a second man's shirt was out; and I already have a grey-and-black striped Tshirt, so I made one for Cassie. It is just a plain little Tshirt, but we all need plain Tshirts too. The plainer the better when it comes to basics!
this method, and the sleeve and lower hems are sewn in a shallow zig-zag.
my review of this pattern here.
Top; self-drafted, grey and black striped cotton jersey
