You are most likely looking at the pictures of this shirt and all the details and thinking there is no way you know how to sew a shirt. The first time I sewed one I thought so too. But it’s the same as every other sewing pattern. Be organised, take it a small step at a time, sew carefully and before you know it, you’ve sewn your first shirt. After that, it’s so much easier to make the next and the next. If you thought it’s all too difficult then you must think again and watch the three videos below. It’s easy once you know how.
The pattern comes in lots of sizes from age 1-2 up to 12-14 all saved as individual files, so you won’t have to worry about cutting the wrong lines. This listing includes both Letter size and A4 format as a zip file plus a German version too.
