Coral Stripe Knit T-Shirt

Another T-shirt made from my knit fabric picks.

Just a basic T-Shirt this time.  No fancy sleeves, or fancy neckline.  Just a basic T-shirt that I matched the stripes on the sides like a BOSS!

I have two fabric left to sew up.  I saw this Butterick 5753 shirt pattern and I am really liking it!

Butterick 5753
Since the floral knit fabric is only 1 yard x 48" wide.  I think it would work for this pattern since I have to use a coordinating fabric anyways.

I'm off to sew something.....................

Until next time...............



  1. You did a great job matching those stripes! What's your secret?

    1. Long ago I was told to match stripes, lay out your pattern with the bottom armhole on coordinating stripes. (on the white stripe) Does that make sense? It works out 99% of the time. Happy Sewing
