When working with knits, it is important not to stretch or pull the fabric while sewing. Also use a stretch needle and a stretch stitch. In this tutorial all seams are sewed with a twin needle.

Step 1: Draw the pattern.















Draw the pattern with an aqua trickmarker on the back of the fabric. The pattern is without seam allowance. Ad 1 cm (0,5 in) seam allowance. Ad 2 cm (0,8 in) seam allowance at the bottom of the singlet. Draw the neckline without seam allowance.

Step 2: Cut the fabric.
















Cut a front piece and a back piece out of the fabric.

Step 3: Pin the front piece to the back piece.




















With right sides facing pin down the back and front piece.

Step 4: Sew.




















Sew the sides of the singlet.

Step 5: Fold the seam allowance tho the inside.




















Fold the seam allowance of the bottom of the singlet to the inside and pin down.

Step 6: Sew the hem in place.




















Turn right-side out. Sew the hem in place. Sew about 1,5 cm (0,6 in) from the outer edge.

Step 7: Sew neckband.




















Take your ribbing fabric and cut it about 4,5 cm (1.8 in) wide. Align the raw edges of the neckband with the raw edge of the neck opening, wrong sides together. Sew 1 cm (0.4 in) from the outer edge. Stretch the neckband while you sew, but be careful not to stretch or pull the singlet fabric.

Step 8: Sew neckband.




















Fold the neckband over the cut edge, re-fold and pin down. Sew.
Step 9: Trim.




















Trim.

Step 10: Sew straps.




















Align the raw edges of the neckband with the raw edge of the neck opening, wrong sides together. Sew 1 cm (0.4 in) from the outer edge. Stretch the neckband while you sew, but be careful not to stretch or pull the singlet fabric.

Step 11: Sew straps.




















Fold the neckband over the cut edge, re-fold and pin down. Sew. If you want to use long straps to tie your straps up with a knot to fit, you're singlet is finished now. Otherwise continue with step 12.

Step 12: Attach straps.




















Sew the straps onto the back of the singlet. Trim. (For the length of the straps, see pattern.)




















Finished!
