I am just so excited to share more of these kiddie shirts. I finished them in time for our sojourn to London over 2 weeks ago. The pattern is from Ottobre Kids Design Magazine 03/2015. One is size 155cms (6yrs old) and the other is 102cms (4years old) size. For Ottobre I add 1/2″ seam allowances. Having sewn 4 of them before already (link here) these were a quick make.
The fabric is a lightweight cotton that I bought quite a long time ago – it been in the stash for over a year. Initially it was going to be dresses for the twinkies but the boys really liked this when they saw me sorting out my stash. There is not much more to add – except that I sewed 2 pockets this time and used a contrast undercollar on one of them because there was barely enough fabric. Dont even ask about pattern matching m’kay!
Verdict: the boys love them! I dont sew for the compliments but I felt really chuffed when I was asked where I bought these ‘adorable monsters shirt’ and I said “I made them” #smug 🙂 OK pictures…..
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Sewing all!
