I wanted to make just one tee from this tutorial and I loved all the tips from the tutorial. If you have trouble making tees then this is the best place to find all the answers. You can get tips from the best threads to use on the cuffs to what fabric is best for your tee.

I have tried to make T-shirts before but can never get the fabric from stretching way too much on neck,sleeves and bottom hem but I like this pattern so I am going to give it another try soon.I can never find ant T-shirts that I like because I like mine longer than the ones they sell and if I find them they have very limited choices. Has anyone had similar problems with the stretching of fabric? I may try one but make it for now with long sleeves since it is fall. Thanks.

Weberme, there are several factors to consider when working with stretchy fabric. One is to make sure you are letting the machine move the fabric through and that you are not pulling or pushing too much. If you have a pressure foot adjustment, its also good to lessen the tension on this. Make sure you use a ballpoint, or a stretch needle. And cut your neckline just large enough to go over your head. You might also consider using facings on the neckline to help give the material more stability.
