This is for sewing, not knitting.... anyone have any great links they can share?

Just to clarify, this is the kind of thing I'm looking for....

Those are really cute!  I would be interested in a pattern too.


These aren't as cool, and I hate Martha Stewart, but they look easy.

What age were you looking for?  I had a McCall's pattern quite awhile ago but at the time my daughter was 5 or 6 (now almost 9).  I'm thinking that the McCall's pattern that I used might be out of print now, but was exactly the shirt you were looking for.

Folkwear makes a baby kimono up to size 4T in their "Little Folks" pattern, #109. http://www.folkwear.com/children.html

Or New Look #6333 goes up to size 4

I actually have the New Look pattern, even though I have no girls, it was too cute to pass up! Maybe a granddaughter someday!! LOL!

Hey thanks everyone...

stacysews, I guess any size really, although I did have in mind baby-toddler - so up to about 12 months.

Trifarina, I'm not a big fan of Martha either, but I saw that site yesterday, and sheesh! Her pattern is like 16 pages long! Smiley

Sewlittletime, that Folkwear pattern is ADORABLE. And I want to make absolutely everything on the Simplicity site.... *sighs*.... if I could just give up work altogether....

all you need is an ordinary t-shirt pattern.  copy the front piece on the fold so you have a full front pattern then just draw the style line you want for the opening.

sewing order is:

stitch together at the shoulders.
set in the sleeves.
apply binding to sleeve hems.
close the side seams, making sure to include the interior tie on the left side.
bind the outer edges.
stitch on the remaining ties.
