kid’s clothes week project two is approximately my 543rd flashback skinny tee. it’s just kind of the perfect pattern for so many things that i want to make. little guy grows faster than his sister and is messier too, so today’s necessity project is for him.
this shirt used to be mine. my husband got it for me a few years ago and it’s really cool, buuuuut….it’s an american apparel shirt, which means it’s TINY. like uncomfortably small even though the size fits me in every other brand. so finally, rather than sitting in my drawer unworn, this very soft (feels vintage but it’s not) tee turned into a comfy little shirt for O.
it’s an ampersandwich. get it?
he calls it a “hangaburger.”
i sewed it in a 3T, a size up from his normal, because i made it short sleeved and wanted it to fit more loosely. i saved the factory hems on the sleeves (tips on that here) but hemmed the bottom with my twin needle/walking foot. something skipped while i sewed and it got slightly wonky, but probably not too noticeable.
he likes it. this boy lurves his ironic tees.
