Sewing your own clothes is such an exciting and rewarding process. I love when someone compliments my outfit and I get to tell that I made it. It often leads to conversations about their sewing experience.

My grandmother was a seamstress and sewed almost all of her family’s clothing including prom and wedding dresses! How crazy awesome is that? While I am not that talented yet, I sure hope to be one day.

Because I know oh how much everyone loved my video about how to sew pajama pants without a pattern, I wanted to bring you a similar one only this time showing how to sew a shirt without using a pattern. You are going to be blown away by how easy it is to make!

What do you think? Sewing a shirt without a pattern can be really easy! With a cute knit fabric and some EloFlex thread, you will be ready to rock and roll. I had so much fun making this shirt and can’t wait to make even more! 


As always, I am here to be your personal sewing cheerleader! You’ve got this guys!! If you happen to come across any questions that I don’t seem to answer in the video, just leave a comment on the video or this post and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can! Happy Sewing!!
