This is my 700th post! How crazy is that!?!
Anyway, on to the sewing... Logan has developed a love for the letter "g". Not just any "g" either, it must be the fancy gothic "g" with 2 circles. So when he saw this shirt in the latest Ottobre he HAD TO HAVE IT.
Kitschy Coo Dolman Top.
first Dolman Top, but I thought the sleeve opening was a little snug, so I lowered the underarm seam 3/8 inch on both back and front. I also sewed the neckline with a 1/4 inch seam allowance, which raised the neckline slightly and also made the band a tiny bit wider. I think this makes it look a little more boyish, but the neck opening is still plenty large for easy dressing and comfort.
this tutorial from Dana at MADE for the freezer paper stencil technique in general. To give this one a bit of a blotchy, vintage screenprint look, I glopped the paint on and smeared it into the fabric with my fingers. The kids had a blast helping with this part. And Logan LOVES his new "g" shirt.
