Birthday shirt

Nani Iro Shirt

Pattern:  New Look Vintage Pattern Size 4 courtesy of Mars Bar

Fabric:  Nani-Iro from Shimgraphica

Ease:  Medium

Tidbits:  My first shirt, although the simpler kind, the instructions were unhelpful and perhaps I should have eased the stress by making a muslin first.

Oppsies:   The pattern was short and wide.  I lengthened it before cutting but took in a good 3-4cm on both sides.  Lesson, check flat pattern measurements before cutting.  Need a lot more practice before trying big peoples versions.

Kidlet Rating:  5 Stars – loves it

Stars and Stripes Shorts

Pattern:  W-Pants, Blank Slate, Size 4

Fabric:  Cotton Twill + Quilt Cotton Contrast

Ease:  Easy

Tidbits:  Second time around these pants were a breeze, I left the welt pockets off but added piping for interest.

Oppsies:   I could have added a bit of width to these given the fabric had less stretch

Kidlet Rating:  4 Stars – pretty popular
