Men's T-shirt Dallas sewing pattern - sewing tutorial

Before sewing

For sewing a T-shirt, choose fabric with a low content of elastane: soft jersey knit, interlock.

We recommend to use Jersey needle for your sewing machine. Use Double Needle to finish a hem.

In case you don’t have serger you can use any stretching stitch on your sewing machine: Zigzag or special stretch stitch.

Attention! All our patterns already contain 0,7 cm / 0,27 in seam allowances.
