Project #11: Red Skully Shirt
I got this book Sew Clothes Kids Love for my birthday this year. It's got all sorts of cute clothes patterns in it. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make the Imke Shirt for Blockette. I finally got around to finishing it up yesterday. It didn't turn out exactly as I wanted it to because I couldn't remember how to do this one stitch on my serger. So the seams are showing on the shirt hems. I think it works with the design and makes the sleeves look a bit more flared. Blockette absolutely loves it. When I showed it to her she exclaimed, "Everyone in my class is going to be soooo jealous!" I'm going to cling to that appreciation. All too soon she is going to turn her nose up at the homemade stuff. Hopefully I have a few years left! Apparently the kids in her class aren't the only ones who are jealous. Mrblocko saw her in it and said, "That looks cool. I'd wear something like that." I told him the pattern only went to a girls size 12, so he was outta luck. Then he went and cried in his Cheerieos.
