KCWC - Raglan T

 KCWC is such a great motivator to sit down and make clothes for the kids.  But, sometimes I find it overwhelming.  The other night I was paralyzed with indecision and ended up getting frustrated and doing nothing.  I did catch up on Project Runway, so that's something. 
 After a night off, I regained my motivation and threw together this shirt.
 FABRIC:  2 repurposed T-shirts
PATTERN: self drafted using an existing shirt, Rae's Skinny Tee pattern and Hey June's Greenpoint Cardigan Pattern.
RESULT: a perfect fit and he loves it.  He was even excited about the elbow patches.

Have a great weekend! 


  1. Sometimes I have the same problem with motivating myself to get sewing projects done. If i have a deadline, I usually get my mojo back the night before the deadline...go figure.

  2. wow, this is a great mash up! I love that my pattern is even tenuously linked to something Rae did :) good idea - it looks perfect!

  3. I hear you on the overwhelming-ness of all that KCWC inspiration. I had a plan which was totally thrown out this week when I saw all the wonderfulness that everyone else was completing. I think unless you spend way more than 1 hour a day or you are working exclusively with knits and a serger (which I've yet to purchase), it's very hard to complete one project a day. I think your attitude was the best way to go.

  4. This is cute - it reminds me of mini-Boden!
