It is really starting to heat up where I live. No doubt when spring starts, it will cool off again. Bernice celebrated the start of spring with a gorgeous dress but I have gone with an old staple in a cheerful print.
I won this fabric from a recent crafty mamas competition. I was able to chose a metre of Vincente knit fabrics. I thought the elephants were kinda cute. As part of entering the competition, I said I would make a bright top for me - so here it is.
The pattern is Kwik Sew 2306, which used to be my staple t-shirt pattern. I dragged out this pattern because I thought the elephant needed to be broken up with a plain fabric and a raglan sleeve. I used a reverse cover stitch in white to hem becuase I thought the printed lended itself to some contrast there. It looks a little rash shirt like, but no matter.
The fabric is 160cm wide and there is plenty left for some matching shirts for my kids.
