Learn to Sew Knits: Jalie Knit T-Shirt

Learn how to make your own t-shirt using stretchy, knit fabric! We will primarily be using sergers, but you are also welcome to use your sewing machine.

We will be using the Jalie T-Shirt pattern #2805 (available in store). This pattern includes 27 sizes for girls and women, with 4 different t-shirt styles.

Learn how to transfer your pattern size onto tracing paper, cut out your pieces, and assemble your fabric into your very own t-shirt.

This is primarily a serger class. If you do not own a serger, you are still welcome to join and bring your sewing machine.

(This project will be easiest to complete on a serger. You can use either a 4-thread or 8-thread serger in this class.)

At our 1st class session, we will take measurements, trace out the appropriate size pattern pieces, and cut out our knit fabric.

At the 2nd class session, we will sew the t-shirt together.

All of the supplies for this class are available for purchase at our store.

Class Supply List
  • serger or sewing machine (only for 2nd class session)
  • thread (need 4 spools if you are using a serger)
  • Jalie T-Shirt pattern #2805
  • knit fabric (see notes below)
  • wonder clips or pins (wonder clips are preferred)
  • red dot tracer paper (2 yds will be plenty)
  • fabric scissors
  • pattern weights or magnets, or you could use pins (we recommend Sew Tites)
  • SewkeysE knit stay tape
  • measuring tape
Notes on knit fabric:
We have 8 different knit fabrics for you to choose from in our store. Please purchase your fabric in advance (if possible), so that you can pre-wash your fabric before class.
Check the back of the pattern to estimate your size and yardage needed.

If you made the biggest sized shirt in the pattern (US size 22) and did long sleeves, you would need 1-5/8 yds. If you did a size 22 shirt with short sleeves, you would need 1-1/4 yds.
