salty and sweet tees

Congratulations to the My Interactive Book of Mormon Stories Giveaway winners - The Henrich Family, Whitney and Brad, and Colette!  I'll be in touch about your prize.

Ruby is a real funny kid. I sewed up a couple t-shirts for her to wear with the yellow bubble pocket shorts, and the two shirts speak to both sides of her little personality.

First, Ruby is part tomboy.  She loves to run and climb, dig in the dirt, get disheveled.  I made this henley style shirt by refashioning an old maternity shirt.  And since I was able to reuse the old neckline and hems on the shirt sleeves, I was able to whip this out in like 30 minutes!  Score.



On the flip side, Ruby loves all the girly stuff.  She wants princess hair and painted nails and it is her life's mission to pick every yellow sour grass flower in southern California.  For the second tee, I added a strip of stretch lace I've had in my stash forever and puffed the sleeves a bit.


Ok, the girly side only lasts so long...


Both shirts were made using Made by Rae's Flashback Skinny Tee pattern, but I went up a couple sizes for a looser fit (I want all these clothes to last a while!).

p.s. did you hear that the Parsley Pant Pattern was officially released?  I can't recommend it enough!

Jill, can you make these for me? Seriously, I love both and I love the yellow shorts. I think I need to go get me some lace to attach to a shirt now. So cute!
