KCW day one: flashback skinny tee

Another KCW is upon us (or as Caroline refers to it, “Neglect Your Household Week”), and I am jumping right in.  My plan this week is to sew things I know my kids will wear.  Comfy, practical stuff.  I spent a few hours this weekend cutting fabric and setting aside patterns.  You know, gathering my Mise en Place.

Up first is a flashback tee for Corinne in some incredibly soft brushed knit, size 2T.

GREAT pattern.  This would be the first time making this pattern using yardage… the past couple of times I sort of cheated by using my husband’s old shirts and keeping the existing hems.  This time around, I put it all together with the serger, and then switched to my sewing machine with a walking foot and zigzag stitch to hem the bottom and to attach the neckband (which came out hella perfect if you don’t mind me sayin’).  I might break out my twin needle sometime this week, but I do like that walking foot/zigzag combo.  So what if it isn’t totally profesh!?

Also, I would like an entire wardrobe made out of this fabric.  It’s fabulous stuff, I tell you.

See you tomorrow!

(p.s. Caroline is busy this week making NINE little minion outfits for Jet’s Despicable Me-themed Birthday party this week!  Good Mama right there…)

  1. So cute! Long sleeved comfy shirts for girl toddlers…why do I never seem to have enough? I swear I wash the two turtle necks and four boy-styled long sleeve t-shirts my girl wears EVERY week. Love the idea of making her some warm, cute ones!

  2. this is darling and so professional looking. i wonder if i’ll work up the courage to try out this pattern this year. it’s kind of one of my unofficial resolutions. 🙂
