I bought this fabric back in May, when my baby hadn’t made his appearance into this world. But even then, without knowing what to make, I had my niece in mind for the owl fabric, not my unborn child.
For her first birthday I used the fabric and made her a dress. I used the TAMI Tee dress pattern.
The pattern calls for one front and one back piece. But since I’m not that good with thinking I cut the back piece upside down, I’m not just to working with fabrics with one direction prints. Hopefully I’ll remember this until next time.
The fabric was quite light so I put interfacing tape at the edges to get some more stability. I also put two snaps in the neckline since niece’s shoulders were too narrow for the neck opening.
Her mom (my sister) liked it and I think that niece did too, as much as a one-year old can express it.
Pattern: TAMI tee dress from Burdastyle, creator Arsonista
Difficulty: Novice (creator’s rating – I totally agree)
Alterations: Added snaps
Fabric: Cotton jersey
Notions: Interfacing tape, snaps
Total price: Fabric 27 SEK (€2.88), Thread + interfacing 1 SEK (€0.11), snaps 2 SEK (€0.22).
Total 30 SEK (€3.22)
Project summary: Snaps were added as the neckline was too wide. A wide neckline is needed on toddler, but this one wouldn’t stay on her shoulders. But with snaps it worked. A very, very simple project!
