Toddler Shirt

This. is. adorable. 

My mom got me this big chunk of fabric while she was in town last so I cold make a bunch of summer outfits for my little G. I love the orange, it's so bright and happy and, well, summery. I found this tutorial for the "Leah Shirt" and absolutely fell in love with it. Starting off with my pieces all cut out, I followed Jess's directions and just guessed at the sizing. I sort of traced one of miss G's shirts that fits her right now and crossed my fingers that my pieces would end up the right size.  It worked pretty well.

I made my own biased tape that was smaller than regular biased tape, I didn't want the edging to be the focus of this shirt. Regular biased tape seemed to be a little too overwhelming for how small the shirt is.

And, of course, the yo-yo embellishment

I think I'll end up making about 27 of these shirts before I get tired of them... 
They are so easy and so so so sweet.


  1. Great job! It looks so cute on her! I hope I have a little girl someday - and that I can be as successful as you have been in making little girl clothes!

  2. Super cute! That fabric looks perfect for that style of shirt. And I'm so impressed you made your own bias tape!

  3. I love it! You should consider renting your brain to those of us who have extra space to fill.
