When it comes to kids clothes, I’m kind of a “one or the other” sewer. Either I sew a shirt and buy the shorts…or sew a skirt and buy the shirt….or buy a onesie and paint on top. Okay that’s not sewing. But you know what I mean. It’s nice to maximize creative time by purchasing some things and throwing one handmade item in the mix (similar to our discussion here)
So I pulled thrifted T-shirts from my stash on Saturday and made Owen new summer shirts.
I used the 90 minute shirt tutorial and created my own pattern.
But since I haven’t used that pattern in over a year it needed some tweaking.
Actually, the neck on the first shirt was a little wide (but I sort of like the boat neck).
So I redrew the pattern neckline and shoulders to make it smaller.
Little changes; big improvements.
I wonder if he’s too old for an envelope Tee. Maybe it’s too little boy for him? I mean, look how much he’s grown in the last 2 1/2 years!
I guess if he still likes riding this itty bitty bike though, the 90 minute shirt works.
The kid does have a real bike in the garage but he really loves this thing! He can zoom around so fast.
$5 shorts from Target.
$2 shirts from me.
