We’re back from our totally relaxing vacation in the Outer Banks, the laundry is finally caught up, and I’m ready to start sharing my Kid’s Clothes Week garments. Today, I’m sharing my Counting Stars Adventure Tee with faux banded sleeves and hem.
I used a cotton spandex knit from Girl Charlee to make a size 8 for the oldest of my three. The navy and white star fabric came with such a wide selvage that I thought I’d put it to good use for the sleeve and bottom hem. No use letting good fabric go to waste, I say. I used a white ribbed knit to give the neckline a contrast look and I think overall the faux bands and fit of the pattern give this shirt a decidedly retro look. I have to admit that I love the idea of a banded shirt without the extra work of cutting and sewing on the bands
This cool walker seems to like the shirt and since I, for once, didn’t fail at inserting the snaps, have declared this a keeper. What school boy doesn’t need a whole slew of t-shirts in their closet? The coolest part? It could take me at least 10 attempts to create this pattern with all the options and I’d still not run out of ways to make it slightly different. Pretty cool!
You can grab the Adventure Tee and the rest of the Make Believe patterns through Pattern Anthology through July 28th.
