Melissa from Blank Slate Patterns and Melly Sews shares a tutorial showing two ways to modify a basic t-shirt pattern. The first is to give it raglan sleeves (sleeves that extend from the armpit to the neckline) instead of standard set-in sleeves. She also shows how to modify the neckline of a fitted tee to give it a loose, drapey neck. And if you’re having trouble with the knit stretching out as you sew, she gives some tips for avoiding that problem. Go to her tutorial to see how to make both modifications.
