The chevron shirt (and a birdie one too)
The second Sadie saw this shirt she called it her zebra shirt. lol...I haven't heard chevron described as that yet! This one is one of my faves of late...it came out just like I pictured, which is always exciting when it happens. I used this fabric for the top, and some coral knit for the bias tape. It's really similar to the Playdate dress in construction, but the yoke is a bit more curved.
I used my walking foot to sew most of this top-I use that foot for about 95% of my sewing actually! It's perfect for knits, since the feed dogs help move the stretchy fabric through evenly. With a ballpoint needle and a walking foot, you're practically unstoppable when faced with some jersey.
Little Miss Sassypants has been on fire lately with her poses. She is getting a huge kick out of photo shoots lately for some reason. I haven't even had to bribe her with anything....what is up with that?
This picture right here describes her perfectly right now. Soo into dancing and ballet, a bit of a show off, and full of energy!
More sassy pics. I love her so.....what a goofball. I made this one a dress, but it's not as A-line as I wanted so it looks like a nightgown. I may chop it off to be a shirt. I used this fabric...aren't the birdies so sweet? The binding fabric was a clearance Joanns find awhile ago.
And yes...there's more tees a-coming.
