For day three of the KCWC I had big plans to make some slippers for Olivia, but realized (sadly), that the pattern I was going to use only goes up to size 12 months. Oops! So instead I shifted gears and made this little horsey tee.
Fabric: this t-shirt that I thrifted 2 years ago
Pattern: Flashback Skinny Tee from Made By Rae
In order to include the awesome horses, I had to cut away the original hem. Rather than use ribbing, I cut a strip of fabric from the t-shirt leftovers, folded it in half, cut it slightly smaller than the t-shirt, and sewed it on to the bottom of the shirt the same way you sew the ribbing around the neck.
I love the way it gives it a bit of a fitted look without being overly fussy (or hard to do).
Some dummy accidentally cut a slit in the t-shirt back. It's like they tried to cut the neckline for the t-shirt front without moving away the t-shirt back first. Who would do that? Pah. Not me. (Ahem.) To cover up the unfortunate t-shirt hacking, I added a little tag on the inside of the shirt...
...and on the outside.
What? Oh, no, there's no hole there. Why would you think that?
Somebody loves her new horsey tee. So much that she voluntarily changed out of the shirt Daddy got her dressed in, put this one on, and let me take a bunch of pictures of her. Win!
She's really into doing this pose lately.
This is how you wipe your nose without a tissue. All the cool kids are doing it.
Have a happy horsey day!
