Until recently I never understood the desire to make t-shirts. They're inexpensive to buy and I always felt that a t-shirt's a t-shirt.
But a t-shirt's not a t-shirt if it's in a giraffe print. Nor if it's in chartreuse... with a hi-lo hem.
There's also something surprisingly exhilarating about making these t-shirts. When I presented it to Indigo, she exclaimed, "You made that?!"
Yeah, that's kind of how I felt, too.
Then she paused and reminded me, as graciously as she could, "But I'm not that into t-shirts."
Yes, yes, it's true. But I was hoping I could convince her by pairing it with a skirt made in a print with her name in it: Indigo Ikat Tika by Michael Miller
I used this Fiesta skirt tutorial for this skirt. I really like the fullness of it. It reminds me of these miniboden skirts.
This is one of those fast-to-sew outfits that's satisfying to make and practical for everyday wear.
