Double Layered Tee

With just a little time in front of the sewing machine, I not only found my sanity returning (I think I may have a bit of cabin fever), but also came out with one heck of a shirt. When I purchased the thermal knit, I hadn’t intended on using it with this fabric (I was thinking of using a solid color like a recycled t-shirt), but I think they work so well together.
Overall, the pattern sewed up wonderfully. I just sort of skimmed over the directions for this pattern so I can’t speak for how they read (although I do believe that in View C, the hem for the short sleeve shirt may have been omitted?), but the pieces went together without a hitch. The finished shirt is a bit big on Easton, although it’s not a surprise since he’s not quite in the 2 size yet, but it fits about the same as some of his current RTW shirts that are marked 2T. I probably won’t alter the pattern for the next time I make this shirt as I am sure that he’ll be taking a growth spurt and everything will be different by then! All in all, a fabulous pattern from Jalie – I’ll definitely be making this one again (and again, and again!).

    Thanks for the review. I just ordered the pattern to make a shirt for my grandson. Easton is just as cute as ever.

    Thanks for the review! My husband loves to wear that type of t-shirt (and I like they way they look on little boys). I might have to order this one!

    Cute shirt Stacy! And because you are the ‘Queen of Knits’ I have a question for you. Lol You’d mentioned before to use a ballpoint needle when working with knits but what kind of stitch do you use? The few times I’ve worked with knits I used a straight stitch but I’ve been researching on the internet and saw a few post and videos where a zig zag stich or something similar was used. What do you do? I have a knit hat to make for a friend’s 1 yr old and I don’t want to mess it up and want to sew it together the best way possible so it’s secure and not puckering. Thanks!
