I tested this pattern for my boy, but since it was something I thought my girl would like as well, I made her a version for finals too. I used to like putting the kids on well-fitting shirts, making sure the shoulder seam hits their shoulder accurately, but it seems the trend nowadays is for oversized tees. Both kids like the style, so I made them different versions. Bonus is that I was able to use fabric from my stash – both the gray cars fabric and the yellow rib knit.
There are lots of options with this pattern –
- Cropped, regular and tunic length options
- Hemmed or banded cropped tee options
- Hemmed or banded shirt length options
- Short and long sleeve options
- Hood, crewneck or banded boatneck options
For my boy, I made a regular length (hemmed) hoodie, and a crewneck cropped (hem) tee for my girl. Since it’s a cropped shirt, I made a yellow cami as well to go with the neckline, as well as the inside of my boy’s hoodie.
Both kids are currently wearing the same size, so it’s easier for me because I don’t need to cut the pattern twice. This was quite a hit with them, and both have already asked for a few more matching shirts.
When I was doing this test, my plan was to get the kid’s cami for my free pattern afterwards. Lucky the designer offered the cami for free to all testers who wanted to use it for their kids to wear inside cropped tops!
Anyway, here are my affiliate links for both patterns:
