I am just so excited to share these kiddie shirts. I finished them on Friday night and my little people adorned them on Saturday morning. Seeing how adorable they looked and how much they LOVED their new shirts meant it jumped the blog posting queue and here we are!
Pattern is from Ottobre Kids Design Magazine 03/2015. I traced 2 sizes – one for the elder (155cms size) one and the other 3 are the same size (102cms size ). For Ottobre I add 1/2″ seam allowances.
These were a blast to make. Let me preface by saying how much I love the fabric. I saw it on B and M Fabrics website and went gaga for it. Ordered it immediately only to fall further in love. But alas, though I wanted to make myself a shirt or dress the kids took one look and they thought it was for them! I couldn’t very well say “No darlings. This sweet fabric is more fabric to add mummy’s sewing cave…..already full of …………fabric.” Do you see my meaning? Lols. I digress…pictures….
I made these up in 2 nights of sewing. (I love sewing for little people! Its so fast!) Once again I love Ottobre instructions for their preciseness and well drafted patterns that are just such a good fit. An interesting thing to note is that the collar is in one piece. I had not yet come across this before – it makes sewing even faster. Constructing the sleeves in the flat also make this a quick make. I even added pockets on all the shirts.
The reaction from the kids gave me the most wonderful feeling of joy. Its nice to make things for them :-).
If I count Friday night sewing, this was the only sewing I got done this past weekend. We spent most of it outside. I did try to mend some things while outside but it was too lovely even I had to sit and just enjoy the sun – a rare thing! Did you get any sewing done this weekend?
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Sewing all!
