flashback tee

[Just sharing this post here, originally a guest post on Elsie Marley!]

Hey! Kids Clothes Week Challenge is back,  I’m happy to be guest posting today!  I got to try out Made by Rae‘s Flashback Tee pattern!  I can tell you that if you have children in your life at all, you really should have this pattern in your arsenol.  Rae has every detail covered, so if you’re new to knits, you can jump right in and feel at home.  Seriously.

I did struggle with picking out my fabrics, I’ve got a huge tub of knits that I have stashed, for no real reason.  The only thing is that I didn’t really have anything that my girls liked.  Except this one print.  I love it!  I ordered it from Girl Charlee a long time ago and have been saving it for the perfect thing, this was it.  I made both a 5T and a 3T long sleeved out of 1 yard.  And if I ever complain that my kids wear matching clothes more than I’d like, you can kindly refer me to this post and tell me it’s my own fault.

Oh and I also busted my twin needle right before I went to thread it. Bummer.  Lucky for me there’s more than one way to hem a shirt, love that about sewing (and Rae‘s lovely tips).

I can’t wait to see all the awesome kids’ clothes coming up, thanks for having me us Meg!

    They look terrific and comfy. I must try it although I have a bit of a hard time getting those end bits with my overlocker. They seem to slide off and miss out :(

    VERY cute – the tshirts are great too. :)

    I love the idea of making my own – my little one likes to wear her pants “old man style” – shoved down under her gut – so I would love to be able to make some extra-long ones for her.

    Fun T’s! I had ones that looked like this when I was a kiddo. I especially love the grey details.

    My mom made us shirts like this every summer, she even made us all matching shirts. Lots of fond memories picking out the fabric at the store
