It’s campaign season in these parts and I’ve been busy. If you’re going to door knock and lit drop, you should do so in style, no?
I used about three of the above XL campaign tees to make this shirt from the February 2009 #118 Burda and one gold tee from the Goodwill to get the neckline trim. Why so many? The shirt is six pattern pieces including lots of curved seams. In addition, I made a significant FBA with darts with Nancy K’s guidance. To prep the black tee shirts to use as fabric, I pre-washed them several times in hot water to make sure they wouldn’t shrink on me.
