Before I went to the hospital to pick him up, I swung by the thrift store to see what I could find - that and I had a 25% off coupon. I wasn't really looking for anything in particular.
I did find though a really cute shirt. Completely not my size, but that didn't stop me from buying it. I thought I could cut it apart and make a little tee for D.
I laid the tee shirt on my cutting mat and placed my go-to shirt/bodice pattern on top and made the cutest little tee. (I like to have a pattern on hand rather than just tracing around an existing tee.) I managed to keep the ribbing from the neck and reuse it. I also kept the sleeve hems to make the sleeves easier. I could not keep the bottom hem because of the embroidery and text.
It fits a little big now, but that is okay. I was hoping there would be enough material for me to make long sleeves on the tee, but there wasn't so now she can wear it in the winter with a long sleeve shirt underneath.
