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.
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.
it's great! i love that last photo of her, and love it with the skirt. Em wasn't that into t-shirts either until she realized how fun it was to pick out the perfect skirt/shirt combos, so i need to make her some more, too! ;)ReplyDelete
Fab tee and I love the skirt.ReplyDelete
I felt the same about sewing tees - but one of my boys had the same reaction as Indigo did - 'you made this?!' and so I happily make them :-)
Both of those items are going to be fantastic wardrobe staples! They're lovely!ReplyDelete
love the hi/low hem! Finally a fad that I can fully embrace:) And that skirt totally reminded me of a miniBoden outfit before I even read your comment - the fun fabric has a Boden-esque feel to it. What a fun, springy outfit - I hope Indigo will get get much wear from it!ReplyDelete
Dan calls the hi low hem the 'cover the plumber's crack' hem! ha! But yeah, I love that style too! Indigo was asking for her skirt already so I'll take that as a great sign.Delete
making t-shirts is the best ;)ReplyDelete
Lovely outfit, and great photos as always.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Marisa!Delete
Lovely outfit! And the fabric and style on that skirt is fabulous! I'm hoping that my little girl takes more of a liking to skirts as there are so many great patterns to try!ReplyDelete
I love the fullness of the skirt too! Twirlability is becoming increasingly important around here, so I'm going to have to make more skirts like that :-) And the t-shirt does look perfectly made. I always have trouble with the neckline and yours looks extremely professional!ReplyDelete
Sanae, thank you so much! That means a lot to me!Delete
Love both of these, Rachel! The chartreuse fabric is intense! (In a good way). Where is it from?? -EReplyDelete
Lovely! I especially like the skirt. I felt that way the first time I made a t-shirt too. Yours looks fantastic!ReplyDelete
