Finally Leo got a shirt, too! And it has turned out to be very satisfying for me, because he has worn it every day since I made it. Luckily the cars hide the stains fairly well (sort of). Every morning he starts unzipping his pajamas and asking for his "cars!" I love it. And I need to make more ASAP to give my washing machine a break.
Growing Up Sew Liberated. I made the 24 months size, which is the biggest of this particular pattern. I used my serger, but her instructions are for doing it without. And I added cuffs and a waistband.
Print Knit Studio. I hadn't heard of that site until it was mentioned in Sascha's KNITerview, but the prices are very good and the fabric came right away. Plus he included swatches of almost every other print they carry which is very helpful.
This interlock is very high quality and easy to sew with. It is cozy for winter, but I don't think it will be too hot for spring if I make a short sleeves version.
I made three more in size 0-6 months for three new little girls that were born to three different friends of mine this winter, babies Evelyn, Charlotte and Virginia.
I used a lightweight cotton pointelle rib knit in iris from fabric.com and some pieces of oliver + s city weekend for the trim (left over from Louisa's Hopscotch Dress.)
These shirts whip up very quickly and are very practical so they are perfect for gifts—and for playing.
