KCWC day 4.

Ah, Thursdays.  My simply amazing, kid-free sewing afternoon, due to my awesome mother-in-law who takes my kids for "Grandma day".  So I set up my machines, put The Killer's in the cd player and look at what I accomplished! 
 
 
Last night before I sewed up the raglan for a twin, I also cut out one more for a twin and one for Jack.  Again, the Oliver + s Field Trip Raglan.
 
 


Frankensteined size again, 12m chest, 2t length, 18m sleeve length. 




For once I didn't lengthen the pattern! A straight up 4.  Though I kind of did worry and make a plan in case it ended up too short, but it isn't:) When he saw it he said "Okay! This is the one I will wear tomorrow!"  Good sign.




This is a modified flashback skinny tee, using the same modifications as last time, except instead of gathering the front I did a pleat.  The back is still gathered. 




The details blend in a little, it may not have been the best choice for this, but that's alright.




This is the back.



And then a white one, I think it will be tunic length... Can't remember how long I cut it, ha! 

I have a few more shirts planned for the little girls, two for Jack (not that he needs more, but I am on a roll for him, and he usually gets skipped!) then Abby needs some.  Seriously, the girl needs to grow, ha!  She has been in the same size shirt for 2 years, so she has plenty in her closet, but they are starting to look pretty worn, so she will be getting some new shirts this fall too.

  2. Another great round of tops! I love the idea of doing a pleat instead of gathers. How much extra do you add to the width of the lower panel?

    1. On my 12m, I added 2 1/2" on the fold, so 5 total. I added a pic to flickr:)

    2. Thanks! I'm never sure how much width to add to get the right amount for gathering.;)
