My creative space.

Here is a little girl who did not want to pose for a photo.
And here is the shirt I asked her to pose in.

I've been itching to give the 90 minute shirt a go since I saw the tutorial posted over at Dana's blog during February, and I am very pleased with the result.  What a great and easy tutorial!  This shirt was a pilot to check my pattern draft and uses thrifted materials from the op shop.

The first time through, this shirt will take you longer than 90 minutes, but after you've made up your pattern, and have fabric ready to go, I really do believe it is an hour and a half job.  I don't have an overlocker/serger, so left my edges raw.  Wouldn't this style be cute as a pair of PJ's with some flannel pants?  Hmmm.  Maybe I will do just that.

If you're wondering, I relieved her of her misery after 3 photos.
