Extraordinary Girl Shirts for Girls and Women | Mabey She Made ItI’m so excited today to be part of the Extraordinary Girl blog tour and share this adorable pattern with you. I have a thing for envelope shirts (or lap tees)–it started in high school but they’re remarkably hard to find in women’s sizes. So when I saw this pattern came in both girls AND women’s sizes, I was elated.

Ironically, I ended up making both of the girls’ shirts, but didn’t get mine done in time (sad!) since I’m headed out of town today but let me assure you it’s on the cutting table, and the fabric is sitting right by the cut-out pattern. I want about 3 of these shirts! But for now, it’s photos of the girls.

The girl’s pattern goes from 12 months to size 14 and the women’s pattern is an XS to XXL and both include 3/4 or long sleeves. And you have the option to turn on/off layers in the women’s pattern so you only print your size. I love that feature.

Another thing I love? The optional color blocking. This was a great way to use up some of the smaller cuts I had in my stash. I wouldn’t have had enough of the stripes on either shirt to do a full shirt even if I didn’t match stripes (gasp!) so mixing them with solids was awesome.

I also left off the pocket detail from the pattern and on Saige’s (green) I cut the hi/low hem straight across. They were quick to sew up and I want mine next!

I hope you post your adult size one. I am interested in how it fits. I love what you did with the girls tees. I am thinking this might be a worth while pattern to have, great for baby shower gifts.
