This was my first experiment changing around the TNT shirt pattern. Unfortunately, it is a little loose on A, so I need to raise the armholes about 3/4″-1″ and take the sides in a little. Still, her sister pointed out that she can certainly wear it under a sweater in the fall, so not a total loss. The fabric is a Canon sheet from Kmart, which are on sale right now, I believe. You can get a twin set and pillowcase for about $12, so you could make two or three shirts and a pillowcase dress for a little girl.
I’m thinking that A has become a little smaller than Betty, because the blouse fits the dressform very well indeed. The rest of the sheet will be used to make a regular shirt with 3/4 sleeves. The sheets have a satin finish and are 100% cotton, so they sew up nicely and look attractive made into garments.
The tan skirt is still half done, and I am working on fitting a pattern for a summer blouse for myself. Now that I have lots of embroidery designs, I want to try them all, just not all at once.
