Easy to make, looks amazing

I just love this pattern, so many options with necklines, sleeves, length etc. I can make t-shirts to suit me rather than just buy whatever the stores say are in fashion. Very easy to make and the tutorial shows you every step so you get it right every time. I think I will make all my own t-shirts now and give away all my bought ones. This is how much I love this pattern.

Made one, more to come

I have just completed my first Besties T-shirt.
Did my normal alterations round back adjustment forward shoulder and I am very pleased with the outcome. However, the front does look a bit shorter so I am thinking I need to do a full bus adjustment..
