Timisoara - TEX LINE. DEPOZIT DE TESATURI.(fabrics,fabric) Circle Knit Shirt Tutorial Post by Raechel of So. I have a favorite shirt. I’ll be honest, it’s probably my favorite because it’s the most comfortable shirt I own, AND my husband bought it for me and he thinks I look cute in it. Anyway, I wear it with a long tank top, leggings and either boots or black Toms, depending on the weather. So, I worked this week on developing a 2T-sized version of my shirt. What you’ll need: The fabric piece I used was knit (you want a drapey fabric), and was 20″ wide and 34″ long. Also, you’ll need a sewing machine. Get your fabric piece laid out on your cutting board, folded on the top so it looks 21″x17″. There. (That’s a fold on the top – you want your rectangle intact!) This might be a good time to tell you how to measure for a size other than 2T… How to measure for your own sizing: Width: Arms straight out, you want the sleeves to fall just on the hand-side of your elbow. Okay, on to the task at hand: Mark the center point of the top of your fold. So close!
