Dad blew the pants and knees out of his jeans, trashed the collar of his favourite shirt and didn’t wear this black T anymore. Everyone wins!

Daddy’s Shirt Dress

Pattern: Sweet Little Dress Size 3

Fabric: Dad’s old shirt

Ease: Easy, just line the pattern pieces up with the bottom of the shirt and no need to hem.

Lion Shirt

Pattern: Recess Raglan, Size 4 + Size 5 length

Fabric: Dad’s old T-shirt + Happy Days Cotton Contrast

Ease: Easy

Tidbits: I played around with interfacing for the woven fabric. I ended up using a stretch interfacing and basted the woven layer on to the T-shirt layer underneath before sewing as normal.

Lessons: Boy this kidlet grows fast – I could have added a bit of width to this! ie a straight size 5 next time.

Kidlet Rating: 4 Stars – pretty popular
