KCW Day 4: The Teal Shirt
Today's been busy, so I kept the KCW sewing simple. Last night I picked up a handful of really nice t-shirts at a free clothing swap I participated in. I scored a few fun things for myself and a few super soft tees to cut up and refashion for Olivia.
The original t-shirt I cut this one from had words on the front, but since I was using the existing hem, only a bit of the words ended up on her little shirt. So instead of keeping the words on the front, I used that piece as the back and I really like the way it turned out. You don't really notice them at first, but it's a fun extra detail that makes it look just a little more posh. And you know we're all about posh around here. (What?)
Okay, more details below...
I made this tee using Dana's Basic Tee, lengthened (like I talked about here). This time I used the existing hem on the sleeves and the bottom of the shirt and I used the original ribbing (cut off and re-sewn) around the neckline.
This was exactly the kind of project I had room in my schedule for today. Super quick, super easy, and it turned out to be such a great, comfy shirt for Olivia! First new shirt I've made for her this week that she's asked to keep on after we finish taking pictures. I have a feeling it's going to get a lot of use this summer. :) Sure love a good, quick project that turns out right on the first try.
By the way, did you hear? Thursday is the new Friday. Makes us wanna dance...
Have a happy weekend everyone!
