Sadie has been needing some new tees, so I set out to make her some the other day. These are so quick to whip up, especially with a serger! (also, look out for a post about a cool tip regarding sergers in the next week!) I use my raglan tee tutorial, and used both ribbed knit for the collar/sleeves, and regular jersery knit fabric as well. Both methods worked pretty well! Make sure to cut the jersey knit so that it stretches the way you want it to (across) when cutting the collar pieces. Also make sure to practice before cutting into your pricey Spoonflower fabric! (I did, but it was still a little scary!)
So I bought two fat quarters (when they were on sale, buy one get one free!) of this mint horse fabric. It was love at first sight, and Sadie loved it as well. Until I made the top for her, then she said she hated the green color. It'll grow on her....or else. Isn't the mint so pretty with her hair? Grrr. Kids!
I got it in the organic knit, which is oh so dreamy. Seriously I might just keep the shirt in my sewing room to pet every now and then. Like I said, it's pricey ($14/FQ for the knit), but if you catch a sale, it's not TOO bad. I will still probably wince every time Sadie eats in this top. Or make her take it off. Which means it's off limits for preschool days I guess since they probably frown on that sort of thing.
This next one was her second favorite, and my fav of the three! Of course the coral floral was a win for me. I accidentally made the sleeves a tad long, but they look cute bunched up so I like it!
Both of the knits in the coral top and the striped one below were ordered from Girl Charlee. It's a great online shop for knits, really affordable and they have a great selection! Lots of cute prints to choose from. They're not my sponsor or anything (though I'd love to have them hint hint!), just a shop that I order from. A LOT.
And here's Sadie's favorite! Bright pink stripes with a big gold heart. What more could a 4.5 year old want?
I used some more of the gold fabric I got for my Mockingjay shirt for the hear....I have a lot more of it, so you may be seeing more goldification of the girls clothes in the near future! In any case...more shirts to be posted soon since I'm on kind of a roll. Love when that happens.
