On day 3 of Kid's Clothing Week, I got to experiment!
I've had this star fabric in my stash for what seems like forever. I *think* it was purchased from fabric.com about 4 years ago but I'm not sure. I just remember that is was really cheap!lol Earlier in the week, BK was hanging out in my sewing room while I worked on the baby gift. She spied the star fabric and
demanded asked me to sew something for her out of it.
I thought a top would work nicely. But what pattern to use?
I recently purchased Grainline Studios Maritime Shorts pattern to use for myself and K. During all the research I did looking at Grainline Studios and their flickr group, the Scout Woven Tee pattern kept popping up. And that got me thinking...what about making a woven tee for the little girls?
So I did!
pattern: Sewing Modkid Style's Not So Plain Tee
fabric: stretch poplin star print for main, aqua linen for the bias
mods: scooped out the neckline, made a slight high/low hem, finished the neckline, sleeves, and hem with single fold bias tape
Before sewing the shirt together, I basted the shoulder and side seams together and one sleeve to make sure that the fabric would indeed work. And it did!
I followed Jen's tutorial for doing the bias to finish the neckline, sleeves, and hem. I could have done white as the blue shows through a little but I think seeing the flash of blue as BK wiggles about is better than plain ol' white.;)
When I asked BK what she thought of the new top she replied:
