My son has a really big head, so when I saw this snapped raglan shirt pattern from Ottobre Magazine, I KNEW I needed to make it for D. But it’s only in toddler sizes. SO, I decided to make the pattern in the largest toddler size for the Bean, and the then figure out how to size it up for D.
so we made it this afternoon, just in time to wear to a party at My Gym. I made it a little longer than the pattern, and did a lettuce hem instead of real hem, and left off the cuffs, because I wasn’t sure on sizing, but it’s PERFECT.
I also used snaps on my snap press instead of buttons, because I only had tissue jersey, and wasn’t sure how it would hold up to buttonholes….
I LOVE the collar, it was so easy to put on her! (she has a big head too), and the whole thing took about an hour, so I foresee MANY more of these for both kiddos.
also, it’s really hard to stay motivated to do stuff when this is happening on your bed….
don’t you just want to snuggle in with Radiator (smaller/darker/fatter) and Killian (fluffier, bigger)?
