Ringer Tee by Brindille & Twig

I was probably really stupid to make a white sweatshirt for my son. But I had just enough left of this cute panda french terry to make the ringer tee in 96. It’s huge on my son but will probably be a good fit for autumn.

The pattern was a quick and easy sew. I made this one more like a sweatshirt but it’s supposed to be a T-shirt pattern.

Ester & Ebbe by Threads by Caroline

I really like this basic T-shirt from Threads by Caroline. It runs from size 74-146 and comes with a pocket option and a cute frill option I am yet to try.

I love pockets on T-shirts. It makes them look so much more dressed up.


I had just enough left of this gorgeous sponsored fabric from Elvelyckan Design to make this shirt in 92 for my son. It’s a little too big for him and I can’t wait for him to grow in to it. Back in August I made a shirt for my brother in the same fabric. It’ll be fun to see them match each other.

As you can see on the first picture I was a little short on fabric for the sleeves so I added cuffs instead. It worked out great.

This is my first Ester & Ebbe. I made it from scraps from a rayon spandex fabric. So soft and cool for summer 👌🏾

Raglan T-shirt by Small Dreamfactory

About a year ago I discovered that raglans are a great way of upcycling T-shirts for grown-ups in to T-shirts for kids, since you can fit more of the print that way than sewing a “normal” T-shirt.

I realised this while trying the Raglan T-shirt by Small Dreamfactory for the first time. The patterns is free in size 56-92 (newborn – 2T) and is available for sale in larger sizes. It comes with instructions for doing a snap placket in one of the raglan seams, which is great if your kid has a big head like mine.

I always forget that seam allowance is NOT included on Small Dreamfactory’s patterns. So here’s a reminder for you (and me). Luckily my son is skinny, so the ones I’ve made for him without adding seam allowance still fit, they are just a bit tighter.

You can find the pattern here.

Some live pictures of the raglans and a really old photo of me from when the Blood Brothers T-shirt still fit me.

Rowan Tee by Misusu Patterns

I’m taking a little risk by posting this today, since it’s a gift for a boy on his christening day in the end of January. But his parents aren’t active on Instagram so I should be fine. Cross your fingers.

I decided to colour block the back of this one, but the pattern has a whole back. Should you want to colour block it – just draw a line wherever you would like the block to be and don’t forget to add seam allowance.

The T-shirt is Rowan Tee from Misusu Patterns is a loose fit T-shirt with dolman sleeves available in sizes 62-164. I’ve made quite a few by now and it’s one of my favourite fits on my son. It’s an easy sew and a great look that I highly recommend. I even made it in woven once with a placket and it looked great like that too (it’s the one in the middle photo below).

You can find the pattern here.
