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.
Tidbits: I love this shirt dress, the fabric is so cool for hot days and the beautiful coloured jewels make me smile!
Kidlet Rating: 4 Stars – loves it on hot days
Pattern: Recess Raglan, Size 4 + Size 5 length
Fabric: Dad’s old T-shirt + Happy Days Cotton Contrast
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.

The kidlets were listening to a Sesame Street tunes and didn’t want to stop, so the music came with us to the wall.
