Is it really day four already? The past couple nights I worked on this.
I used Figgys Tee for Two pattern. I added a cowl neck to it the first time. Do boys wear cowl necks? It didn't look right and I removed it and so the collar woes began. I then had to unpick the collar once more and it still isn't perfect. I think being sewn a couple times was really stretching the knit and squirting it with water and ironing wasn't really helping.
Another reason to love a two year old. Their ideas. I had a picture in my head of this shirt, elbow pads and a deer head silhouette. When I shared my idea with Loo he corrected me " an elephant" , I countered with a fox and we wound up with an elephant. Don't argue with a two year old. I like that it's what he wanted, not what I did.
I also really like the old man elbow pads. Not to leave Beri out I made her a Tee for Two dress.
This was an old shirt of mine. Have you ever had a shirt you thought looked good then saw another person wearing it and been thought, hey that's ugly? That's me and this shirt. It happened at a demolition derby and I haven't worn it since. I kept the original hem for both body pieces and I cut out the sleeves with the cuff still attached. Made for a quick and easy sew. It's waffle knit so it will keep her warm and cozy.
