Fashion Fix: The easiest T shirt in the world!

It's official, I can almost count the number of stitches required to make this t shirt!

All you need is one of your favourite t shirts as a template.  This t shirt is simply two t shirt shaped pieces, sewn together. The t shirt fabric I used doesn't even need hemming as it won't fray. Just to make doubly sure, I used pinking shears for all the raw edges which just adds a lovely design detail as well as being completely practical!

You will need:
  • one of your own t shirts
  • sewing machine and complimentary thread
  • pinking shears
  • dressmaking pins
  • 1 metre t shirt fabric
  • fabric marker

How to do it:
  1. fold your t shirt fabric in half right sides together and place your existing t shirt on top as a template. 
  2. draw around it allowing 1.5 cm seam allowance along the seams. You don't need to allow for seam allowance at the sleeve, neck and bottom opening of the t shirt.
  3. cut out, you will now have two identical t shirt shapes.
  4. place right sides together, pin along the shoulders, and up the sides. 
  5. Machine a running stitch.
  6. remove the pins, trim raw edges and turn inside out.
