Well, the little dog shirt turned out pretty cute. But because of where I placed the strip of trim it was a wee bit snug. He did agree to wear it long enough for me to snap some photos. Mom will try again tomorrow. I'll add a bit of ease to the pattern. I think my seams were a little larger than on the original t-shirt, too. Poor Reggie was stuffed in there like a sausage.
If nothing else it was good practice sewing with the Kenmore. I got to play around with the stretch stitches and get used to sewing knit fabric. I used one of those ball tipped needles and it seems to have done the trick.
