Dr Seuss Shirt!

July 17, 2012

I recently bought some really fun Dr. Seuss fabric to make some cool surgeon’s caps for L (pictures of those to come!), and had a little bit left over of each.  I think it was a little less than 1/4 yard each.   So, I decided to make a fun little garment for R!

I started off thinking I would make a skirt, but as you can see, it turned into a shirt.  Once all the pieces were together, there wasn’t enough fullness to make a good gather.  Plus, I like the way this turned out!

Luckily, so does she!

As you can see I kept it pretty simple: I just put the pieces together, cut out arm holes, and then made a casing at the top to put double fold bias tape through.  That’s pretty much it!  Oh – I also finished the arm holes with bias tape.  But that’s really it!

I think it took me about 30 minutes – definitely worth it!

I think the impromptu things I have made make me the happiest!  It is so gratifying!  Actually I take that back – watching R pick the shirt out to wear and over definitely makes me even happier!

Hooray for Seuss!
