Confession time, I really am a terrible seamstress. I made this shirt for my 11 year old and when she tried it on it fit her, but only because it was a knit. I copied the fit from a shirt she has that fits now. I just lay the old shirt on the fabric and cut around it like I have done a million times in the past but it ended up really tight. I really just forgot to compare the stretchiness of the two fabrics, the fabric I used for the new shirt was NOT as stretchy. So I just let it sit on my dresser for a few weeks taunting me with its general cuteness but inability to be worn. So as it was taunting me I got so annoyed that I was struck with inspiration. What is too small to be a shirt for my 11 year old may be a perfect tunic for my six year old.
So it turns out my general inability to sew has turned out okay yet again. I gotta say it is nice to have three daughters because whatever I make should fit someone in my house.
P.S. If any BYU football players happen to read my blog would you please win your game tonight? My husband is a pain to live with when you lose.
