Kids jersey shirt - enough of jersey!

Tinkara - 2 y 3 m

I made this jersey shirt for my daughter but I think this one was a miss. I don't like it and it didn't turn out the way I wanted. And I tried so hard. I changed the pattern from Burda magazine 5/2012, mod. 142, size 98. I made it smaller even though I don't know how to make that. It's not complete yet. I actually wanted to make a pair of shorts because she needs one. I still haven't made them. So the look is not complete yet. It's so funny when you want to make one thing but then you end up making something completely different.
I came to a realization that it might be enough of jersey now. Recently I've been just making things out of jersey. This one was a bit disappointing. I'm already eyeing chiffon as my next material. At least I fulfilled my other standards - the shirt is made of fabric remains. I have a polo-shirt made from the pink one and a dress from the grey one. My husband asked me if I wanted a ˝mini-me˝. Not at all.

Polo shirt - The third

Going home from the seaside July 2014, Delnice, Croatia

I love this pattern from Burda 5/ 2005, mod. 104, size 38, so this is the third variation of the same pattern and there will probably be more. I think that it's sporty and elegant at the same time. It was made from fabric remains. Recently I try hard not to buy new fabric because I have lots of material in boxes, bags, wardrobes, under the bed and so on. Eventually I'm going to master the polo neckline.
I'm still obsessed with jersey - it's easy to work with, clothes don't need ironing, they stretch with you as you get bigger ...
