A few weeks ago I took my best friend’s twin daughters to Joann Fabrics so they could pick out their own fabric for me to make them an item of their choice. Check out my post last week about the mate to this shirt, a tiny Frozen one of course, here.
I brought out all my patterns in their size, about 10 total, and had them pick one. They both chose the same shirt (See & Sew B6307), which was fun for me because I hadn’t actually used it yet. I mentioned this in last week’s post, but it’s a good pattern for trying a bunch of things out. To have an ‘easy’ pattern with bias tape binding, an encased elastic sleeve opening and a thread button loop seems like a lot, but the second time around went much more quickly. I would definitely use the pattern again, I would probably just take the time to make a facing (like I did with this dress last year) instead of having to use bias tape.
This was us at Joanns. Pushing two carts with humans in them around the store without toppling a cart or knocking over a display was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Their mom was like, yeah, I do this every time we go to a grocery store. #respect
I added a band at the bottom because of course I decided the shirts should be longer after they had already been cut. I would recommend knowing your required shirt length before cutting. As the saying goes – do as I say, not as I do.
