Horsey Tee


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
Sleeves: puffed




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!

Love the little band at the bottom. What a great little addition that changes the shirt. I know a 3 year old of mine that loves horses, so this shirt is going on my list. Thanks.

I am also dying of cuteness from this shirt. Good grief Katie, these projects are super charming!

I love this! The horses are so eclectic and so perfect for a little girl too. The details are awesome- including the tag. :)

I'd love for you to link this up to WKWW-What Kids Wore Wednesday Link Party this week at ONE little MOMMA.

I, too, am a fan of the band at the bottom. And all the photos of a certain darling little girl.

Those horses are brilliant! And I like the tag too :-) If we're confessing to KCWC cutting disasters, well let's just say that 'someone I know' yesterday chopped a t-shirt in half instead of on the fold. Having a little break to ponder fixing that one!

Cute shirt! But the model really steals the show. Cute, cute, CUTE little sweetheart!
