Basic Tee

This is a long-sleeve tee pattern I downloaded last year from BurdaStyle. It's the Lydia pattern, which I got for free but, alas, now costs $1.

This was the first t-shirt I ever made, and you can see the hemline could have been better. Pressing helped those puckers a bit. I also noticed with a bit of amusement (now that I've been sewing clothing for a year) that I blind-stitched the sleeve hems. Why did I do that? I have no idea.
Interestingly, the pattern called for a facing at the neckline, which you could say is unnecessary in a t-shirt, but it is a lot easier to do than a neckline binding.
The shirt has a great fit and I plan to make more of these for fall - possibly with a regular neck binding.
