Welcome! Today I spent the afternoon making a crop top. I put together a quick video showing some of the process. The pattern can be found here.

DIY Long Sleeve T-Shirt

Today I made this long sleeve shirt. It is size small but I made it from a super stretchy knit fabric so it can fit medium or probably even large. I found the free pattern at Nap Time Creations. I think I'm going to make a bunch of these. I printed the pattern, taped the... Continue Reading →
