Well, I decided to stray from my mission to make as many dresses in one week as possible, and venture into shorts/shirt territory. My guess is these won't get worn much. She just really LOVES dresses. haha. oh well.
I made the shirt using my Sadie shirt pattern-and altering it a bit-adding a little v in the neckline and coordinating band around the waist. Added some gathered sleeves with yet some more coordinating fabric (yay for coordination), and a bit of gathering in the middle of the shirt panels.
And DUH a button closure. I'm not sure I can make a shirt without one. Isn't this fabric lovely? It's from the new Moda line Just Wing It. The main fabric is Flowers in Turquoise, and the accent fabric is Minis in Tomato. I got them both from my awesome sponsor Lily Bella Fabrics!
You've probably seen Elsie Marley's awesome knot shorts already, right? If not, this is what they look like.
They were really easy to make, and turned out really cute. My only thing was that Sadie's foot gets caught in the lining as she was putting them on, but it's not that big of deal, I just make sure and scrunch the layers together. Easy, and cute.
Peekaboo at that cute lining!
