Pattern: 90 Minute Shirt Tutorial

You can learn more about these shirts on Sascha’s blog. Sascha writes to us, “I obviously was inspired by the 90 minute shirt tutorial by Dana of MADE… I used some recycled knits from old t-shirts as well as new fabric. I used freezer paper stencil for the graphic. I found the image on Font Space as a free download. The font is called Efon. I get the most hits from this shirt on my blog than any other garment I’ve made. It is especially popular among my European visitors. The image seems to have a universal appeal.

I kind of have joked about the 90 minute shirt becoming the 30/30 for me. Thirty minutes to cut it out because I hate cutting very much and 30 minutes to sew. I’ve made about 10 now and the one area that has really improved is the neckline top stitching. I love making them and have made them in short sleeves and am now working on a couple of rompers (with snap closure in the crotch) along with the lap tee shoulder. What I joke about a lot on my blog is that I am impatient and quite a procrastinator so simple projects like these give a lot of satisfaction. Since I started making these I have found a new motivation for sewing and have been trying to dress my third child (10 month old Vincenzo) almost exclusively in handmade garments. What a great feeling.”
