You have seen Shelley here many times before and we are happy to announce that she will be here regularly in the future.

Today she is going to show how she customized a Liesl + Co. pattern. Thanks for sharing your tutorial Shelley!

This can be a pretty feature for an otherwise simple T-shirt, but it can also have a practical application. If you use a fabric with less than the recommended stretch (or you have a big head) you may struggle to get your head through the neck hole. (Cutest T-shirt fail ever! )
