Told you this one would be fast.
I made my new shirt with a lightweight printed knit paired with cream interlock knit. I began with Simplicity 4561 (which you’ve seen from me before), but I wanted to modify the pattern a bit. I thus traced all the pieces, then got to work with my ruler and french curve.
I changed the shape of the upper front piece a bit, then added a channel to the center to stick elastic in and gather it. I shortened and slightly altered the shape of the lower front- in the original pattern it’s gathered up the sides, and thus far longer than the back piece; I got rid of that extra length. Finally I added contrasting bands to the bottom of the shirt, and the top back of the shirt.
Then I cut, sewed, then cut and sewed some more. And look! I have a new shirt, with just a few hour’s work.
The print fabric, which is awesome, came from JoAnns. I have a tiny bit of it left and am trying to figure out if I can turn it into another shirt- but until I figure that out, I’m moving on to another quick knit shirt, this time attempting to use up more of that white interlock knit (which, for some reason, I have a large amount stashed- no clue what I ever intended to use it for.)
