I had a little (OK big) clear out of my wardrobe in an attempt to create some storage space for my new makeshift sewing space - but more on that later. For some unknown reason most of my T-Shirts featured tiny little holes on the bottom front edge.
Hubby's theory is they were catching on my belt. I've changed my belt and they still appear. I reckon it's cheap T-Shirts. So anyways most of them went in the bin, or at least put in a pile to bin but I couldn't bear to waste that much fabric. At the time I was running short of jersey cotton for baby clothes and here was a pile of it headed for the bin. So it get sent to the rag bag instead.
I had a root through it one day and cut out a big pile of baby T-Shirts. I made them up in a couple of batches according to the thread colour I was using. I got pretty speedy by the end. I'm pretty darn chuffed with my efforts.
This one was made from a vest top which really didn't have enough fabric in it. So it got a contrasting neckline. I think it's actually one of my favourites. Next time I do a batch of T-Shirts I think I'll include more in mixed colours like this.
Here's the pattern I've used, Simplicity 2291. I used the vest pattern but cut off the bottom part of the pattern and hemmed it instead to make a T-Shirt even though I don't actually own a T-Shirt pattern. I have also omitted one of the shoulder fasteners and shortened the neckband to compensate for this.
