More Pink, More Stars! {Plus a HUGE Giveaway}

Well the Etsy shop has been opened and is going strong! But, I’ve still gotta clothe my kiddos…and make Christmas presents…and sew all the things my hubby has asked me to sew.  Ok, ok, one thing at a time. First – my River! She still needs quite a few long sleeve shirts for this fall/winter. Although I’m realizing the value in few options for her. I love that when we look in her drawer she has three shirts to choose from. It makes getting dressed a whole lot easier. Can you relate?

(I was given this pattern, but all opinions are my own)
Naturally I went with stars. And River has been begging for a shirt with this pink stripe fabric. I used it last to make her Gumnut Dress, and she can’t wear that much now that it’s chilly. So, she had to have something else with this pink.

First, let me comment on the pattern. It is so fun and simple! I told my husband it would take me an hour from start to finish, and then we could watch the Hobbit. So, I went to work and got it done! I chose the look without the flounce to keep things simple and picked a different fabric for the upper arm section. I also liked some of the looks that had a different back fabric, so there’s lots of space to play around with fabric combinations. Plus, you can make this short or long sleeve. And it’s a dolman style top, so no sleeves!

Don’t give me that look River, you know you love the pink stripes. Petit Oiseau by Sew Thrifty {www.sewthrifty.org}

I used a size 4, and she’s still in between 3/4T in other clothes I’ve made her. This one is a bit larger, but I like that it hangs loosely on her. I love that it’s a bit long too. I’m always making clothes longer for my entire family and this one I didn’t have to, so yay!

Petit Oiseau by Sew Thrifty {www.sewthrifty.org}Since I only had to use a strip of the stars, this shirt cost me less than $5. The original pink stripe was $7/yard and I used about 1/2 yard. The stars totaled less than $1, making this a $3.50 shirt! Can’t get much better than that.

Now, who is ready to win this pattern and so MUCH MORE?!
