One more while I'm uploading to the blog. We got the swim shorts at Target, but I needed the rash guard shirt so I made one. The fabric is "Under Armour" supposedly, from a co-op. The pattern is Kwik Sew for Toddlers. Yes, toddlers. I made him a size 3, and he is nearly 8 years old. He is thin, but not that thin though. They are supposed to fit snug, and Kwik Sew runs really really wide so it worked. I added 5 inches to the length of the pattern before cutting. I'm happy with this one, and it cost me probably less than $3 in fabric. Woohoo.
Long time no blog, huh? I have been sewing though! Here is one item I like. I rarely take the time to get out the stuff for embroidery, but decided this shirt needed something. The pattern is the Farbenmix Quiara. I narrowed the shoulders for Lily and lined the hood. I hadded a big butterfly to the front. She loves it because it has a hood. :)
