My first T-shirt

I finally got around to making Auggie a shirt.  I've been making Elizabeth things for some time now, but it's so hard to think of something cute and creative for a boy.  Lately this whole "refashioning" idea has been all ove the sewing blogs I read... where you take old clothes to make it into new.  I wanted to try this 90 minute t-shirt idea from  I love her blog.  Such fantastic ideas!  So here it is, plain as it may be.

Here is the original shirt I used... I got it free with membership... though I'm not a member anymore. :)

Pieces all cut up.

Final product!

I added some yellow ribbing to the neckline to make it not so plain. :)

It's a perfect fit!

Look at my hanging cheeks. :)

The shirt looks funny here because his belly is so big. :)

I was surprised to see how well it turned out!  Next project.. a pettiskirt for kate!


  1. super cute!!! who is kate?

  2. katelyn.. carol and pat's baby. A long time ago I told Carol that I would make her daughter a pettiskirt for her birthday. It's a long project.. so I hope I don't burn out. :) Grace, you need to have a girl so I can make her pretty things. :)

  3. it turned out so well! what did you do w/ the xsport logo??

  4. I just cut it out. I was debating whether or not I should keep it in the shirt. :)

  5. I love it! You're so talented Alice! And I love how Auggie is getting cuter by the day =)

  6. i'm in the middle of making a shirt-dress of d. i've hoping it turns out okay. :P love how the 90 min shirt came out.
