A few weeks ago, my littlest girl picked out this fabric from my stash and sweetly asked if I could make her a shirt. I didn’t have the time at that moment, and it took several days of reminding me, but last night I was finally able to sit down and make the shirt. She was asleep when I tackled the project so I wasn’t able to take measurements or try it on and I was worried it wouldn’t fit over her head. I used an existing shirt of hers to draft the pattern from, making a few changes here and there.
The shirt is made out of a cotton print that has a texture similar to what many sun dresses are made out of. The name of it is escaping me right now. I lined the neck with a soft knit so that it would be comfortable on her skin. I’ve found that comfort is the top priority in clothing according to my kids.
She has requested a matching shirt for her doll with all the same details so I’m counting this as a success.
