Alright, here’s another spring top by moi…made with the same striped knit as Elliot’s tee (posted last week, see that link for fabric source), and yes, he asks me to wear it every time he wears his so we can match. And do I? OH YES I DO. Do not think me so short-sighted as to believe that this will last forever. The things you do that you said you’d never do…*sigh*
I think it looks good with this red skirt and my bright pink skinnies. Woot!
The pattern came from a trace of a stretch tee that fits well. I plan to teach a class on how to do…

Spring is here and I’ve been starting to think about the boy’s warm-weather wardrobe. Starting with a short-sleeved Flashback Tee!
The one was made with the size 5T of the Flashback Tee Sewing Pattern and an organic 1×1 rib knit from Near Sea Naturals (remember when I bought those swatches?). Love the stripes and how super-soft this is. Elliot LOVES it. He’s just turned five a couple weeks ago so the fit is just a little big. Room to grow for my average-sized kid. Although he’s looking rather skinny in these pictures. No more baby fat, waaaah!
Making a short-sleeved tee from a long-sleeved pattern is so easy! And it’s no big secret: you could do…

OK everyone, here’s my second top for the Spring Top Sewalong!
I finished it yesterday around dinnertime, hand-stitching like a maniac while the kids played outside in lovely balmy weather. Mr Rae was resting on the lounge chair while the kids crawled all over him, trying unsuccessfully to nap in the sunshine and sipping “medicinal” white wine (he’s recovering from a nasty sinus bug). It was such a nice afternoon.
I used this natural organic knit jersey from Near Sea Naturals and the fitted tunic pattern from Natalie Chanin’s new book, Alabama Studio Sewing and Design, which I’ve already gushed about. I don’t usually throw myself at the marketing reps to get books, but I…
WOO-HOO, it’s here!
The Charlie Dress Add-On is a supplement to the original Charlie Tunic Sewing Pattern. It allows one to make the dress version by taping an extension to the side/bottom of the tunic pattern pieces. The pattern PDF includes four pages of illustrated instructions, plus all the patten pieces for the skirt extensions, new cropped sleeves, and sleeve/bottom facings.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This add-on isn’t a stand-alone pattern; it is used in combination with the Charlie Tunic Sewing Pattern, which is available from my pattern shop.
