TNT Tee Quest, part 1

I'm on a quest to find the pefect-fitting basic T-shirt. I have so many in my closet that are wrong in some way or another - most of them have shrunk and become too short and wide. A t-shirt's a pretty simple garment, right? Why do I have such trouble buying any that work? Well, I've decided to put my energies to sewing instead of shopping, and we'll see what comes of it.

This is the "basic t-shirt" from Ottobre 2-2006-1. The pattern gives you a number of options to make your own combination: short, 3/4 length, or long sleeves, and crew or v-neck. This is obviously a short sleeve crew neck. The magazine describes the top as "slim fitting" and you can see that it is very slim fitting. I added 1" to the hem and I like the length. However, it feels too tight across the upper back and under the arms. The sleeves seem very slim compared to other tees. That's fine since I have scrawny arms, but it's worth noting.

Next up, another try at this t-shirt pattern.
