Rachel Wrap Shirt

First of all I want to welcome all of my new followers. Thanks so much for being here!

Second, I need to say a huge thank you to Karen over at Sew Many Ways for mentioning my giveaway on her blog. I just met Karen, and we got emailing each other and eventually found out that we live like 15 miles from one another! Such a small world. Thank you, Karen!

Alrighty, onto the sewing... At the end of January, Jess from Craftiness is not Optional did another little girl's shirt sew-along. Last fall I participated in her Sadie Shirt sew-along and made this shirt and this shirt for my daughters. This time it was the Rachel Wrap Shirt. I just finished my shirt this weekend...


I love that brown and pink fabric. It's the same fabric I used for the bag I made for my sister for Christmas. My three year old picked out the fabric herself.


That girl loves to pose. And considering she wore it for two days straight this weekend, I'd say she likes the shirt.


I love the little pleat detail on the sleeves...





Guess what? Jess is doing another sew-along this week! This time it's the Charlotte Dress. Make sure you check it out. It's adorable! Thanks for stopping by today!

You have a very cute daughter in a very cute shirt! The sewing looks great! It reminds me of when I spent a lot of time sewing cute little boy outfits :)

I love this, Gwen! The style and pattern are perfect. It reminds me of a cute scrub top for nurses. :)

This is so gorgeous. I'm flummoxed as to how you get to make all these things. I think you must be the craftiest girl I know!
