Here’s some tips for sewing knit fabric.
This first tee is one of my favorite maternity tees. I made it with a soft cotton spandex jersey fabric. It’s really soft and comfortable. I love wearing stripes if you haven’t figured before. Stripes and solids are my thing. I’m glad I made it long sleeves to keep me warm. I lengthened the body and the sleeves so it fits me perfectly. It’s a great basic tee. If you are sewing stripes this is how to match stripes.
The next one I made was a short sleeved aztec print tee. I used a maxi skirt that my SIL gave to me. I loved the print of the fabric, but the skirt was too short for me. Luckily, I was able to make a cute shirt from it. This was one of the first ones I made, and I forgot to lengthen the body. It’s long enough in the front, but not in the back so I have to wear a black tank underneath or the stretchy band of my maternity pants show. Besides that I do enjoy wearing this tee with a fun print.
