I have a few things to show you today. First up is a shirt I made my husband for father's day. I made it secretly in the afternoons while the boys were both at school. He had no idea this was coming lol. I had originally bought the fabric to make board shorts for the kids. It was on the ironing board and my husband inspected it one day, he loved how the inside felt. He said "A shirt made of this would be soooo nice!" So, be careful what you wish for, it might come true.
Behold, the Hawaiian shirt. The kraken and pirate ships are icing on the cake.
The shirt is Kwik-sew 2935. I'll make him a hat in the same green as the inside back yoke soon. It fits him well, he wore it to the fair on father's day. He got to hold a nice gun at the military venue, the soldiers there got a kick out of his shirt.
Our oldest son has a matching hat. I made this with the pattern in the O+S Little things book. I used 1/4" instead of 1/2" seams to give it an extra inch of circumference.
I've been wanting to make this tea party sundress for 18" dolls since I got the O+S book. I wasn't sure which doll to make it for. With the recent news of American Girl #4's retirement I knew it should be for her. Mine is named Davina. I used French seams in all of the skirt seams but something happened in the bodice. I think I mixed up the right and wrong sides and the yokes didn't match up exactly because they weren't cut perfectly. It's a bit tight so I think i'll make another later this week. If I use a print it will be easier to keep track. I think this pattern would work well with fat quarters.
