Mustache Vintage V-Neck
If your kids are anything like mine, they wear a lot of T-shirts. I mean, a lot. So when Melissa asked me to be a part of the Blank Slates Pattern tour, I knew I had to try out her Vintage V-neck.
Disclosure: I am an affiliate of Blank Slate Patterns. I received this pattern for free in exchange for my review and get a small percentage for each purchase. All opinions are my own.
As I’ve grown to expect of Blank Slate Patterns, this pattern is very well done. The instructions and pictures are so clear and easy to follow.
And one of the greatest things about sewing T-shirts? They are ridiculously fast. Pretty sure this one took me maybe 20 minutes. [not including the time that I had to nurse the baby, break up a fight between brothers, and switch a load of laundry]
The grey fabric I wanted to use was an eensy bit too short, so I used a strip of accent fabric at the bottom to make it work.
My three-year-old likes to wear clothes that we can name… like “the train shirt” or “the shirt with the shoes” … so this one is the mustache shirt. I love that something as simple as that can make getting dressed just a bit easier. And I’m aaaallll about easier.
Mustaches go well with long eyelashes, don’t you think..?
Before you check out all the other stops on the tour, you should know that Melissa is donating 50% of all her proceeds this week to the Komen Foundation, in honor of Breast Cancer awareness month and her late grandmother. I have had some amazing women in my family who have beaten Breast Cancer, so this hits me close to home too.
Melissa has such a great variety of patterns in her shop, Blank Slate Patterns. I’ve truly never been disappointed with any of them. Please go pop over to her blog, Melly Sews, to check out all the other amazing garments that have been made. They will definitely spark some inspiration!
Don’t forget, today is the last day to enter the Sally Dress pattern giveaway!
I mustache you where you got that accent fabric :-) Thanks for being on the tour!
Hi there! I bought this pattern the same day I read this post . Well I started to make mine tonight and I had a few questions. I splurged and bought birch organics knit-deer print. I wanted to do like you had an done accenting pieces. So I cut a piece of mustard knit for my neck and when sewn it puckered. The mustache print your using isn’t a rib knit is it ? If you are just using a regular knit do you have to cut yourself a little extra so that you get the same stretch as a rib? Thanks so much in advance for your advice .
