My kids had some material they grabbed from my stash and wanted something made from. Since they are growing up, not out, their clothes are getting a little short.
The first top I was running out of material so I had to alter it a little, and it had seams down the middle of the front and back. At the front I inserted two extra pieces of material so as to make it sit better, be button less and still able to be pulled on. I like this technique so I may just use it myself. Sorry I couldn’t explain it any better.
The second top is just a basic pull on top, long sleeve and about a size 4-5 Australian size.
I have drafted a pattern for this which I would be willing to put up if anyone wants it.
