I couldn’t very well leave Charlotte out of the Great Top-Sewing Marathon of 2013, now could I? So don’t worry, you’ll see more of her cheekies soon. And that belly stuffed in that shirt! I die. So cute! I guess I should make more room in her future shirts for that toddler tummy, but I kind of love how it looks. Why is that only cute when you’re two? Not fair.
Anyways, this was just an easy tee pattern that I drafted using the Figgy’s tunic pattern for the neckline, since I liked how it fit. I used some knit I’ve had for forever (from fabric.com I think), and some coral knit for the bindings. Also I covered some buttons in the same knit and sewed them to the front for a fun touch. I ironed some interfacing before I sewed them on so hopefully that does the trick and they don’t tear through.
Also, a note on covering buttons with knit. It stretches (duh), so I used two layers to avoid as much see through-ness as possible. It was a little tough getting the button to close, but nothing my huge muscles couldn’t handle.
Cheeser! She was so excited to get some tees of her own!
Here’s another using some more of my Spoonflower fabric! I love the big chevrons, and added a little gold pocket to bling bling it up a bit.
This picture cracks me up-she looks so dejected but actually she was just looking at her shoes since I just told her they were on the wrong feet. Toddlers! So funny.
I used a wide double needle on the hem and I LOVE how it looks. I finally was able to fine tune it using these tips.
This one is basically a copy of big sister’s tee.
Still freaking cute though.
If I do say so myself.
Oh and I know you’re thinking to yourself, “oh my heck Jess needs to stop bugging me about this sale.” But……it’s the last day to buy the Sew Fab e-pattern pack so I get to bug you one last time…. They’ve extended the sale to go to midnight tonight, so if you’ve been putting it off, you’ve still got time!
