For her 4th birthday I decided to sew R a shirt and some things to go with it. When the themes for this season of project run and play were published, I got to think that maybe I could do one of the themes for her birthday. To tell you the truth: The candy was chosen after a long look at my different fabrics. I loved this fabric that Pamela Hilti (enemenemeins) has designed for lillestoff. And then it hit me: this really is a smarties fabric and thus, perfect for my little girl for whom a birthday without a smarties birthday cake wouldn’t be a birthday. Well, it was set: She would get a smarties birthday tee.
I used Rae’s flashback skinny tee pattern and was not disappointed. Sewing a shirt from this pattern was actually the very first knit sewing project that I tackled last year (I’ll show this some time the next weeks/months). Back then the fit was almost to skinny, but I guess the upcycled sweater knit was just not stretchy enough. This time I used a size 4T and it is perfect. A slim fit, but still comfy. The instructions were very detailed and helped me to sew a really professional looking garment on my normal sewing machine (I don’t own a serger). I really love the result.
