For the final day of kids clothes week I decided to give my nemesis for the week, the Vintage V-Neck, another try. Considering I had already cut two more out I figured it was worth a try when I wasn’t rushed and could do a proper job of it. I also decided to read each step carefully before sewing so I didn’t miss anything important.
Well wouldn’t you know when you actually read the instructions and follow along with the pictures everything makes sense and you are left with some super cute v-neck t-shirts.
Today was a busy day and I never got a chance to take pictures of Sophie in the shirts but hopefully tomorrow I can include pictures of the shirts in action with my recap of Kids Clothes Week.
The first shirt I completed is made using a thermal knit which is going to be nice and warm as the temperatures continue to drop. For the second shirt I thought it was only fitting to make this pattern using a vintage jersey knit. (A little secret though, it is actually a jersey sheet)
Once I got the hang of the collar the rest of the shirt was a breeze. I need to stock up on some boy knits so I can make a few shirts for Ben. They are great basic t-shirts that can be worn year round here in Seattle.
I had such a great time participating in Kids Clothes Week. Check back tomorrow for my recap of the week including some pictures that didn’t make it into the blog early this week.
