I love the tee and wish I had one in my size!
I also upcycled an adult swing tee for this shirt. I reused the hems, the pocket, and the neckband. The colors are great and stripes are always a win. It’s basic enough that I’m hoping it can work well in her wardrobe.
This one doesn’t drape quite as well, but it’s still a comfy, loose tee that’ll be perfect for summer.
Lastly, I made some little shorts. I chopped up some leggings that I don’t wear anymore with this free legging pattern, and I cut it into shorts. It’s actually a swimsuit fabric so these might because swim shorts for her. I already know that she’ll need multiple swimsuits to keep up with her active self. I had to remember how to sew swimsuit fabric.
I added some elastic to the front for a cool detail. I just cut some 1/4″ elastic shorter than the length of the front of the shorts and then stretched it while I sewed it to the shorts. Then I hemmed the shorts and added the waist elastic. I went the easy route and did everything with a zigzag stitch.
They are slightly big and longer than I wanted, but that means they will fit all summer!
