I love this shirt. I know, I say that about every test that I’ve done, but I really do love them all.
When I signed up to test for this shirt by Dandelions n’ Dungarees, I figured it would be too easy to make it look sporty (and well, seriously she’s 6 months old, it’s not like she can really play baseball!), so I decided to challenge myself to make it a little girly. I think I succeeded! I actually used a vintage pillowcase to make it, I think it works. The print is so sweet!
It was my first time ever doing piping, and while it was a bit of challenge for me the directions were great (although my piping is not, lol).
I really like how it looks layered over a long sleeve. I plan to make more. My older girl could use some new shirts too!
I think a beginner could do this if they’re willing to tackle piping (if they haven’t done that before). Another great thing about their patterns is that they include a sewing dictionary with their patterns. Super helpful at times!
