Happy Tuesday Lovelies!
Today is my Boy Cub’s 14th birthday! As a gift, he asked for more soft t-shirts (he’s my low maintenance child! lol) He’s been wearing this same T-shirt I made him 3 years ago as a sleep shirt and refuses to get rid of it because it’s so comfortable and soft, so I decided it would be a good time to make him some new ones! I acquired some amazingly soft fabric from LA Finch Fabrics a while ago, and they fit the SOFT and COMFY bill perfectly!
Berlin Tees Update: • pinned & serged shoulder seams • pinned & serged sleeves • pinned & serged side seams • pinned & serged neckband ⏱TOTAL TIME: 1 hr 17mins. Prolly would have been faster if I didn’t obsess so much lol …Now to give them a good press and then hem the sleeves and bottom. ✂️ #isew #sewingblogger #sewingwithknit #nationalsergermonth #babylocksewing #imagineserger #berlintee #tobykpatterns #lafinchfabrics
Of the 3 of them, he agreed to model his favorite one (the softest one).
Pattern Description: – The Berlin Tee by Toby K. Patterns
The Berlin Tee is an incredibly versatile pattern. Whether you’re looking for a basic t-shirt, a trendy slim tank, or a cutting edge fashion statement, the Berlin has an option for you. The tank has narrow shoulders and a slim silhouette. The neckline and armscyes are finished with binding to complete the look. The basic t-shirt can be made with long or short sleeves and includes crew and v-neck options. You can also attach the basic oversized hood if desired.The oversized zipper hood has a 1/4 length angled zipper for a fun accent, and the optional asymmetrical hem adds an easy yet edgy look. There are also detailed instructions for cozy thumb-hole cuffs.
