In the midst of pulling summer clothes and sorting, I came to the awful realization that the little girls have hardly any t-shirts with short sleeves. Time to make some more pinterest inspirations a reality!
Ottobre Design 03/06 #17, size 104 with a few modifications
Turtle Design from OD 03/08
While trying on shorts and capris to see what still fit, I came across a pair of hand-me-down capri pants with turtles on the hem. So, of course I had to make a turtle shirt to wear with them.
I added length to the top and ended up taking in the side seams as the shirt was too wide for my taste. One thing about the older Ottobre Design patterns--they seem to run short and wide. It's not a big deal...I usually compare the traced off pattern to another that fits well and make my adjustments from there.
No stink eye today. Or if there is, it's well hidden by the sunglasses.:) And what's up with the socks and shoes...I tried to convince BK that sandals would look nice but she was resistant. I pick my battles and this was one not worth fighting!
