Tee for two #2


Another Tee for Two refashion using an old Nightmare Before Christmas tee shirt of mine and an old Gap striped tee. Pattern is Figgy's Tee for Two. I made it in a size 8 this time and while it's a little big, she can at least grow in to it. This time I made it so the seams are inside instead of exposed and took the neck band off the red tee and laid it right on top of the neck opening, sewing it on the existing stitches. It's a little messy; my machine ate the fabric here and there. She LOVES it. Way more so than the Zombie one. I love it and want if for myself!! Oh, and the sleeve band being wrong side out was a mistake! I sewed the arms on then realized they were wrong but taking out stitches from knits is not an easy process and tends to make holes. I think it looks like it's supposed to be like that, right?

  I'm always surprised by her beauty. I will look over at her and think oh my, she's stunning! And so pure at heart. Not a mean thought in this girls body.
