I love the tee and wish I had one in my size!
I also upcycled an adult swing tee for this shirt. I reused the hems, the pocket, and the neckband. The colors are great and stripes are always a win. It’s basic enough that I’m hoping it can work well in her wardrobe. If you are sewing stripes this is how to match stripes.
This one doesn’t drape quite as well, but it’s still a comfy, loose tee that’ll be perfect for summer.
Lastly, I made some little shorts. I chopped up some leggings that I don’t wear anymore with this free legging pattern, and I cut it into shorts. It’s actually a swimsuit fabric so these might because swim shorts for her. I already know that she’ll need multiple swimsuits to keep up with her active self. I had to remember how to sew swimsuit fabric.
I added some elastic to the front for a cool detail. I just cut some 1/4″ elastic shorter than the length of the front of the shorts and then stretched it while I sewed it to the shorts. Then I hemmed the shorts and added the waist elastic. I went the easy route and did everything with a zigzag stitch.
They are slightly big and longer than I wanted, but that means they will fit all summer!
