I made the t-shirt as a birthday present for my daughters eleventh birthday in April. I had to make it secretly The fabric comes from a garage sale. It’s cotton jersey from the eighties, how eighties can a print be? I copied a seahorse print and cut it out of iron-on flock print foil. This took me some time,… The pattern for the t-shirt was copied from a well fitting t-shirt.
The skirt is made out of a remnant of the liberty fabric I used for my “simple liberty dress”. I had barely enough. As it is not easy to find patterns for older children (most patterns are only available till size 146) I decided to use a women’s pattern from burda easy Frhling/Sommer 2014. Minirock 5 C. I made the size 36. The measurements are similar to a girl size 164 but it ended up a bit big. The skirt is rather easy to make and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. The skirt has an elastic waistband and closes with buttons, my daughter chose vintage flower buttons.
