Melissa Mora (Melly Sews and Blank Slate Patterns) designed this one, and it's intended for boys but would work for girls, too. It's a knit shirt that's perfect for beginners -- the neckline has a facing so there's no fiddling with a ribbed neckband.
I've been intending to make Lee a penny shirt since I saw it on MADE. (Dana's link doesn't work since she moved to a new site a while back, but I just traced the silhouette directly from the computer screen onto freezer paper.)
The shirt was originally off-white, so I dyed it brown and added the stencil. See the extra Abe in the corner? That's a dye-accident-turned-design-element. Now that I've got t-shirt neckbands mastered, dyeing fabric is my new sewing kryptonite.
I used some typewriter stamps for the "In God We Trust" part. No number stamps in my collection to add a year.
The pattern has a short-sleeve option. I love the curved hem and boatneck. It's definitely going to be a great staple for us. It goes from size 18mo-8.
The whole collection is pretty dynamic. It's neat to see some talented designers teaming up like this.
