How to sew your own adult shirts for women. This was a very easy pattern and fun to put together. I used knit fabric and ribbing.
I’ve been keen on making myself a new wardrobe of handmade clothing. I am always looking for new patterns that I think will look good on me and I’ve got a ton of knit fabric saved for shirts (according to my husband anyways).
I’m new-ish to sewing adult clothes, but I’m finding it to be WAY easier than I expected. Some patterns are harder than others, but this one was very simple.

Alterations to Original Pattern and Tutorial
I used the pattern tutorial exactly for this project, except I decided to just serge the bottom edges. I like how it makes them look and it’s easier and faster.
