.Floating Fairies Basic Tee.

These Basic Tees are becoming a little addictive!!  I made a new collection of them for the kids over the weekend...I just love how I can decide exactly what colours and prints I'm mixing and matching rather than being stuck with what is in the shops...plus, my knit fabric stash is steadily growing and I really need to start using more of it up!!
Here's the first one - another long-sleeved version for Lil.  I left out the gathers in the sleeves for this one because I thought it was busy enough without them.  Light-weight long-sleeved tees are just right for the weather we are having lately, sunny days with a cool breeze...
I wasn't 100% sure about the Floating Fairies fabric...whether it was a bit to crazy or not, but love it now that it has been made up.

I'm still really enjoying this pattern - I managed to cut and sew 6 new tees for the kids in 1 day!  Beats dragging everyone to the shops and coming home with way more than I intended to...would rather spend that money on more fabric!!


SUPPLIES:
Make It Perfect, Basic Tees pattern
Sydilla interlock, Floating Fairies in Lime
Stella knit in Pastel Pink

Love :) Can I please trouble you to ask where I can buy affordable stretch knit fabrics to make your pattern? I'm having so much trouble finding anything!
