the Plain Jane t-shirt

Alaine was blessed with many hand-me-downs this year.  Between Maddie's saved clothes and clothes from cousins and offers from friends, we needed very little (a tremendous blessing for a large family).  After doing inventory, I decided to jazz up one of the plain T-shirts.  I downloaded  these PDF templates and cut the pieces out of fabric scraps.  I've never been happy with the stability of fusible web so instead, I pinned the fabric to the T-shirt and did a chain stitch around the edges. 

Alaine is happy because she loves "pree" clothes, and I'm happy because this re-designed shirt goes with so much...her tan shorts, her denim capris, her patchwork skirt...

Soon I'll have to show you how my girls can wear coordinating outfits, even though I can't find matching items in their varying sizes. 


  1. So cute! I want to do your dress project, but my summer days have been so busy! I'll have to see if I can eek out some sewing time. {And the updated picture of Alaine in your sidebar is adorable!!!}

  2. So cute! I have a refashioned skirt for Eliya at the top of my sewing list. Maybe I'll be able to get it finished before she outgrows it :)
