...or my "tween" might not wear it. She, all of the sudden, has some requirements if she is going to wear something mom makes. Her current list is not limited to: nothing bright, must be modern, and make it cool. That is not a small task when what I think is not bright or is "cool" doesn't mesh up to my 5th grader. Well, it hit it out of the ball park with my next stitch out.
Again, used a trusty, go to pattern: Classic Ringer by Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop. Since my lovely lady and I both love chevron, this one was a no brainer. As usual, the pattern stitches up really nice. I added the contrasting sleeves and bands to modern it up a bit and to keep it simple. You know you are doing something right when her friends are asking where she go her shirt. You really know you are doing something right when you daughter actually responds, "My mom made it."
Though I spend my days doing applique and embroidery, I am trying to find the time to dabble in some of my other passions.
