Floral Morrison Tee

Oh this shirt makes me so happy! I had stopped by my local quilt shop, Olive Juice Quilts, and spied this lovely floral knit by Bolt (Girl Charlee) sitting all pretty. I knew Natalie would absolutely love it. It’s such a nice shade of purple, plus the coral and other colors just pop. It was one I don’t think would have grabbed my attention while online shopping, so I’m thankful to have the opportunity to touch and feel it in person. I washed it up right away so that I would be one step closer to actually making something.

Normally I lean towards not actually making something for a long time. It’s way too easy to buy and then set aside. But I’m kind of sick of that mentality, so I got to work on making this Morrison Tee (pattern by Hey June) right away. It was so refreshing to feel inspired by the fabric and then be rewarded by actually completing the project within a short time frame! I think I might have to do that more often, especially for garments.

Anyway, the Morrison Tee is so sweet. Adrianna does such a nice job of being thorough and at the same time to-the-point. I also love that she’s designing for the age group that my girls are currently in, how convenient! In the end I feel like I know what my girls will like. It’s so much easier now to communicate about projects together. When they were littler it was hit or miss, plus I was learning just as much as they were about what they liked and what they didn’t. Now we talk fabric and colors and fit and in the end, most of the things I make them get worn quite a bit! I went with the size 10 after taking Natalie’s measurements, it’s great because Adrianna includes the finished garment measurements as well as the body measurements. So she ended up in the size 12, but after comparing the actual garment measurements we agreed that the 10 would be great. I did add two inches to the length because Natalie is at the taller end of the chart and she loves shirts that are a little longer. It ended up being perfect.

I’m off to start making one for Emily, of course once she spied Natalie’s, she asked for one right away. Love it!

    Oh she looks so lovely and grown up!! What a great, comfy shirt 🙂

  9. I do like the idea of the quick turnaround… purchase and make! I usually manage a prewash but then make the mistake of adding to the pile in a cupboard. Where it stays a while. Gorgeous, happy tee!
