Ottobre 03/2004-9

I'm taking a little break from the holiday sewing to fill some wardrobe holes for Myra.  My poor little princess is ill prepared for the chilly weather - and has no long sleeve tees.  So I pulled out a favorite from last year - Ottobre 03/2004-9, the wrap front tee.
I made her two versions of this tee last winter, and they were perfect!
This time I added a little stretch lace to the neckline band.  I love that there are so many opportunities to embellish this otherwise simple tee.
The fabric is a bamboo jersey that my mother used to make this top, and then sent me the rest.  I still have quite a bit left, so Myra will likely get a springtime dress once the weather warms up again.
It's a nice color on her!  The neckline is a bit more snug than she needs - I think I'll just whack of the seam allowances on the neckline and band for the next time I make it.  No worries getting it over her giant head, thanks to the wrap.

  8. The lace is a pretty finish on the top, and it looks like a terrific pattern - more stylish than a turtleneck ,but just as warm. Clever mummy! (mommy, sorry)
