“Four seasons in one day” is something NZ is well known for and is truly a very apt name for the latest pattern from Lydia at Little Kiwis Closet. What started as a pattern test for a Muscle Tee evolved into a fabulous staple that caters not only for all the seasons but also both boys and girls for sizes Newborn through to 12 years. Talk about value for money.
Now you know by now I have tested for Lydia several times and as always her patterns are a dream to put together. Not only do the instructions walk you through the pattern step by step with pictures but she is always willing to answer questions or offer ideas on her Facebook page.
These shirts were both up-cycled t-shirts and by using the existing hems they were an even faster sew, an ideal pattern to start your adventure in sewing with knits.
I sewed up a size 6 for the Captain who is now 5 ½ and going through a bit of a growth spurt – to give you an idea 4 months ago I would have sewn him 4! He was so excited by the muscle tee immediately putting it on and announcing he needed to join a basketball team as he had a basketball shirt to wear now.
This shirt is available here and will be on sale until 3pm NZ time tomorrow (13/8/14). And don’t forget to grab your copy of her free vest pattern too.
