long tee's




These have been fun to sew. I think I am finally getting the hang of stretch, although I did break two twin needles in the process...too lazy to pull out the pins while sewing. The first two are the same pattern Ottobre 4/2007, striped T-shirt. If this fabric looks familiar, thats because it is. I am slowly trying to chew through my mounds of fabric. You will probably be seeing more of it soon. The blue deer on the red and white striped shirt is one of my favorite colour combinations. A little deer for my little dear. And the white shirt is from Ottobre 1/2008, "puffy" blouse. Its on the big side, which I like. My kids seem to be growing like weeds at the moment.

Very very cute! The Tee's and your beautiful daughter. My kids seem to be growing too quick too. DS1 has elevator legs and all his trews are 2 inches too short right now :S

Maria, the patterns are Ottobre patterns from Ottobre Design. I have written on the post what issue they are from. Hope this helps!

Gorgeous (as usual) Naomi! I love that little puffy shirt, it looks very tricky and beautifully made. I really must give that stretch stuff a go :).

Xiola, the gathering on the shirt was actually easy. It is done by sewing elastic to the seam and stretching it as you sew. You could do it for sure!

I'm trying to get some time and some confidence to try streth fabric sewing. I have so many ideas but I need to learn the "how to" first! Your tops are gorgeous.
