Here is an easy tutorial to sew a jersey shirt! It is a super easy sewing tutorial and you won’t need many materials!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
– 1m (150 cm wide) Viscose jersey
– Needles –
– Sewing thread
– Sewing machine
NOW TO MAKE IT!
Adjust the cut of the fabric accordingly to fit your size. We’re using our model Nicole as an example; she is 1.76 m.
Lay the fabric widthwise (right side up) and pull towards the middle then fold it together.
Now the closed side is up – the dimensions are now 1 m wide and 0.75 m long. Repeat the whole thing – fold up again, in the middle – and now you will have the final dimensions (In our case, 0.5 m wide and 0.75 m long) The closed edge is to the right (see next image).
Now mark the neckline at the upper right corner. Take a marker and draw 10 cm to the left and down from the corner. Place a marker in each case and connect it through a semicircle. Then cut the semicircle along the mark.
Now cut a semicircle down so that your shirt gets the right shape. Around 50 cm down and cut off from the bottom left a semicircle – as shown in the photo.
Fold out the fabric so that you have a simple poncho that is folded out at the sides. To create the sleeves, measure how loose or tight you would like them to be. Mark the spot and pin the fabric. Steppe the seam with a straight stitch. Of course, you do everything on the left side of the fabric (even if the photo shows the right).
TA-DA! Here is your finished jersey t-shirt!
