Personal sewing project: T-shirt 113 Burda 06/2013

I just completed a simple T-shirt from Burda magazine/ June 2013: a shirt with small cap sleeves and princess seams in front and back.

This pattern is pretty easy to make, I chose 2 types of fabric, black jersey and dark grey faux leather. The different steps of the sewing:

And below after a little bit of ironing, not on the faux leather obviously though! 🙂 It will be perfect for this spring and the faux leather gives some originality to a T-shirt that would have looked quite plain otherwise. It has a great cut like most of the Burda patterns.
