I’m pretty sure that I’m . . . um . . . a bit unusual. My oldest daughter, Morgan, and I decided early this morning that since it was a beautiful day, we should take the little ones and head over to our local nature museum and enjoy the great weather. Sounds pretty normal so far, right? Well, I had about an hour and a half before we wanted to leave, and there was one more top left on Jamie’s summer wardrobe list, and we were headed somewhere where I knew I’d have plenty of photo opportunities. I couldn’t resist grabbing my Charlie Tee pattern and sewing away.
I have to say that in a pinch, it really pays to have a good basic pattern that you’re really comfortable with. I grabbed the 5T Charlie Tee pattern tracing off of my pattern board at 9:25, and Jamie was pulling on his new “T-Rex Shirt” at 10:05. (And that included several minutes in which my sewing machine and I exchanged words over the fact that it tried to eat the jersey along the hem line.)
Raaawrr! Stomping and growling like a dinosaur in his new shirt:
And with that, all of Jamie’s tops for the summer are finished!
I spent the rest of my sewing time today working on something girly for a sweet two-year-old’s birthday party tomorrow morning. I’ll have to wait and show it off later, though, since that two-year-old’s mama reads my blog, and I don’t want to spoil the surprise!
