What fun it was to sew someone else's pattern for the Designer Pattern Swap! I got lucky enough to be paired with Sew Like My Mom, and chose this adorable Acorn Tee pattern. It's a unisex, semi-fitted tee with a stylish twist - a working snap-front placket and includes sizes 12 months to 8.
I had just bought this video-game themed knit from Sweet N Charmed Fabric and it was the perfect marriage. I knew right away how I'd make the placket. Wokka wokka wokka ...
[The eye is a KAM snap, with Sharpie details that are not holding up to wear. Anyone have ideas for how I can make the details on the snap more permanent? Comment, please!]
We love the working placket!
The slender 6 year old I sewed for is a 5 chest, tippy-top of 6 height on the size chart, and I made a straight size 6 because, lazy. I did omit the pattern's cuffed sleeve and extended the sleeve to the pattern's final length (with just a little math), as personal choice since the fabric could border on pajama-ish. The cuffs will be great for another time! The pattern was a quick sew and the fit is great.
Thank you Sew Like My Mom for this opportunity to sew up such a fun and stylish tee!
