I drafted this pattern because my daughter has really long arms for her age I guess. All her shirts are turning into 3/4 length sleeved ones.

The seam running across her chest is also across the back. I think next time, I'll leave the back plain. the neck edge, sleeve edges and the hem are unfinished. I'll put the shirt through the laundry a couple of times to see how it holds up.

haha it seems like everyone's kids have little oddities that made storebought clothes wierd on them. Mine has a long torso and narrow shoulders, so either it's too short or she's kind of swimming in it lol.

That's because they don't make clothes for REAL people...just some random averages or guesses or something.  I have the same problem...clothes are either too short or too wide, but they never fit *just right*. 

The blue you used really is GORGEOUS on your daughter.  Let us know how the unfinished edges hold up...my guess is that the sleeves and bottom "hem" will be just fine, but I wonder whether or not the neck will get stretched out.

looks great!  

Having weird shaped kids are good motivators to branch out into pattern making (have thin, long legged children with short torsos and a penchant for wearing everything on their hips anyone?  Well, I have one anyway Smiley)
