I really don’t know what to call this one…you could call it the “copied-a-shirt-I-thrifted”, but that doesn’t have a good ring to it. I could also call this “the shirt that was supposed to fit me but didn’t so my sister got to have it” shirt. Either way, it’s pretty darn cute, and my sis looks pretty darn cute in it too. Hence the cutesy top. Darn her and her cuteness!
Like I said, I thrifted a shirt that was just like this one, so I drafted a pattern for it, (silly me should have enlarged it a bit, cause the shirt I bought was a tad bit tight) and whipped one up last Sunday. It really didn’t take much time to sew up, and was quite fun to make! It has some elastic around the waist so it’s really comfy, and little gathered sleeves with some delicate bias tape trim around the sleeves and neckline.
I’ll definitely be trying it again, this time fixing my pattern a bit. The fabric I got here.

Sadie joined in for some pics with her aunt Nae Nae, after some nervous hair twirling. Uh, kiddo, you spend lots of time in front of the camera, no need to be shy! lol.
I gotta admit, I prompted this photo…I knew it would be a good one.
