I've been sewing knits, and t-shirts for decades, but what kept me from sewing them for ME was the pattern. This class used Pamela's Patterns #104 The Perfect T-Shirt as the basis and I watched in awe as Pamela fit 19 gals with busts from B cup to K cup and sizes PS through 3X with ease. I do patternmaking and some fitting, but let me tell you - I was IMPRESSED! It's both her experience/skill and the pattern we started with. She presented good basic knit sewing techniques too, and made liberal use of her YouTube videos to show techniques. It was an excellent class and I highly recommend it. I have a basic T pattern now that fits and FLATTERS like one of the nice T's I might buy at Talbots. This is a feminine fit, not a loose t, and it's suitable as a casual or career basic depending on the fabric and how you style your outfit.

This is so good to know. I have several of Pamela's patterns but haven't tried them yet. Thanks for the encouragement.

Like those posted before me, I also have a number of her patterns and have yet to break them open....need to get to it. Thanks to you for the encouragement to 'get 'er done.' And thanks for the heads up about the You Tube videos. You have made my day with your informative post.
