Neckband Done

This week, amongst all the other excitement, I've been doing a Craftsy class called "The Ultimate T-Shirt". I bought it when their classes were on sale a few weeks ago, but had to wait until the pattern arrived from the US.

As I'm watching the class, I'm sewing along with this remnant piece of fabric I bought earlier this year. This afternoon I got the neckband done:

This fabric doesn't have much stretch, which is why I cut the band on the bias. I'm hoping it will sit flat when it is on, but I won't know for sure until I get to the last lesson! For now, I'm up to putting on the sleeves.

It looks good so far, Vireya :-)

I have just started sewing t shirts - need to photograph the rest & post on my blog! I found Lara's tips over at her Thornberry blog to be very handy. I have been using the free t shirt pattern found at Peppermint magazine. Yours is looking good so far!

I don't think this is the best t-shirt pattern, as I have had to make a lot of adjustments. But it came with the course, and I will use the ideas from it others patterns I have once this one is finished. I'll have a read of Lara's tips as well, thanks.
