To make the pattern for my top I just traced around the neckline and other dimensions of a shirt I already liked. And the same with the sleeves - I just traced around each half of the sleeve, then taped the halves together. It's pretty easy to adjust the sleeves when you're pinning if the pattern isn't quite perfect. I pin everything together and make sure it's all as neat as it can be before I sew. This fabric was quite slippery to work with - but I have heaps more of it - so when I get around to attempting something else I will at least have lots of room for error!
This t-shirt was made with the support of Jeff Goldblum's chest hair in Jurassic Park!
