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.
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:
Thank you for visiting today. I look forward to any feedback you would leave in the comment section below.
Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.
