    Love it. Just getting back into stretch sewing after about 30 years. Made with band.

    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..

    Bit early yet to comment, have got it printed but Christmas has meant visiting family which is also a priority.
