So last week, I was finally able to share pictures of my Sun Kissed Tee by Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop in a gorgeous Art Gallery knit. If you scroll through the blog, you can see that I’m a HUGE fan of PAB. I have sewn over 100 garments made with PAB patterns in the last 22 months.
There are a few reasons for that volume of sewing (not that I have to justify sewing excessively to my readers, I imagine).
Today, I am excited to share the Little Miss Sunshine Tee and dress. As I was wrapping up testing the women’s shirt, I was able to do a quick test of the girls’ shirt so I could take some mother/daughter pictures. My tall nine-year-old daughter is modeling the size 10 dolman tee with a bit of extra length to accommodate her height. Even though I had been thrilled with the speed at which I could assemble a Sun Kissed tee, I was still surprised at how quick my daughter’s dolman came together. Less than 45 minutes from taping pattern pieces, cutting, serging, and coverstitching.
I also want to take a moment to share some sewing growth I experienced making these tops (and other dolmans you’ll see very soon). I confess that I have aways been a bit scared of my serger. I only used it to finish the edges of wovens and knits that I’d already pieced on my trusty Brother HC1850. I decided that since the seams were so easy and quick, and I had just had my Pfaff Hobby Lock 794 serviced, I would be brave and piece with my serger. This easy top is the perfect “first serger” project for anyone with a new serger or anyone who, like me, struggles with being scared to piece with my serger.
If you are looking for a quick and flattering tee for every day wear, the Sun Kissed tee and the Little Miss Sunshine tee is the perfect wardrobe builder for every day of the week – for her and for me.
