Several times, I have attempted Dana’s 90 Minute Shirt. And for whatever reason, I could not get the neckline to fit the right way. So I basically gave up and decided that my kiddos are just destined to wear homemade shirts with plain, boring necklines.
Well, no more! I have triumphed over the 90 Minute Shirt!
Continuing to post my Upcycled Christmas gifts, these were made for another nephew – who, lucky for me, is nearly the same size as my one-year-old, which meant I could try everything on him to make sure it should fit – yay for close in age cousins!
The pants came from a sweatshirt (re-using the existing hem for the bottom of the pants), and the shirt came from a larger shirt (re-using the ribbing from the shirt’s neckline to make the neckline — the one that was a success on the first time for this shirt, I might add)
I could also call this the Serger Christmas, since I have now mastered one stitch on my beloved serger. So I guess a good goal for 2011 would be to master more than one stitch….
(And P.S. all these lovely niecies and nephews also got homemade play dough… I just can’t be the auntie who gives only clothing… I need them to think I’m at least a little bit fun.)
