Simplicity 8376 and Silhouette Patterns Armhole Templates

Simplicity 8376 has become my go-to casual t-shirt pattern. This one can be cut and sewn in under an hour. I use my serger (overlocker) for all of the construction.

Coverstitched topstitching around the neckline holds the seam allowance down.
Narrow coverstitched hems on the sleeves and bottom edge.

For my hanging out at home, running a few errands, spending the afternoon in my sewing room days – this is the shirt for me. Just one thing about the shirt has always kind of nagged at me – the fit of the armhole, particularly in the underarm area. I purchased the armhole templates from Silhouette Patterns and used them to change the armhole on my Simplicity pattern.

My thoughts and a before and after comparison are in my video:
