Nora's birthday is coming up and I decided to make her a shirt. Mostly because Carter's can con me out of my twelve-or-so dollars for a birthday shirt Nora will wear for a week and then never put on again, unless I convince myself I can make something cuter. :)
Case and point, Nora's first birthday, a shirt from Carter's:
(Granted, first birthdays are different. Moving on.)
I decided to get my money's worth and make her birthday shirt out of a shirt she already has (lying in the bottom of her drawer.) I took a plain pink shirt, matched it up with some cute fabric and some Wonder Under I already had, and came up with an adorable shirt similiar to the ones I have seen all over blog-land:
I am pleased with how it turned out! Just what I was going for.
. . . BUT - it's a 24 month shirt, in a brand name that runs small. It's possible that this shirt may be a little short on my extra-tall little girl!! I know I should have tried it on her first to make sure, but we still have a month before the party - she could grow an inch before then anyway. So here's to hoping that it fits . . . otherwise I will be out buying a longer shirt to go underneath! :)
Until next time . . .
