I am so excited to be part of my first Blog tour with Chrissy from Muse of the Morning! As part of the tour, I was given the Practically Perfect Girl’s T-Shirt pattern and to say I’m in love with it is an understatement! First, let me tell you that this is the perfect pattern for your basic t-shirt and it comes with SIX sleeve variations! (I don’t have any boys, but I do think that a few of the versions would work for a little boy too.) Having three little girls who love to wear anything I make them AND always wanting to dress them alike (I know they won’t let me do this forever, so I’m going to take full advantage of it for as long as I can!) I especially love any pattern that comes together quickly and ends with a professional appearance. This awesome pattern does both! It took me a little over 2 hours to print, cut, and sew 3 of these tops!!!
I love having three little girls and it’s even more fun that they love each other so much!! And of course, it is always fun to sew for little girls. I picked up this fun knit a few months ago at JoAnn’s and thought it would be great for these Practically Perfect T-Shirts. I chose the short sleeve version with the banded hem, I LOVE that little detail!!! It was such an easy thing to do and I think it add just the right amount of flare. You can see the band a little better in these pictures.
I made the size 2 and size 5 and both fit great! The pattern is well written, easy to follow, and has great illustrations. Another feature I appreciate in PDF patterns is she tells you what pages to print for the pattern pieces you need!!! (You don’t have to print every sleeve variation!) Thank you Chrissy for such a great pattern!
Our girls were so happy to wear these today and were very eager to go outside for pictures this morning. They raced out of the garage and then I realized why they were so excited to go outside – apparently Daddy was playing hopscotch with them last night when I was making dinner! I love these moments!
