Sew & Tell - Ryoko's Seahorse Shirt

Everyone is making little girl's clothes, and I love it! A newly sewing addict, Ryoko finished this adorable shirt for her friend's girl. You know 'the seahorse.' It's just so well known I don't even have to mention by whom this print is designed. The pattern is from a lovely Japanese book - ISBN978-4-579-11054-4. A simple A-line shirt is perfect for beginners. In fact, this is Ryoko's first clothing she's ever made. The shoulder ties look like long bunny ears when untied, and they are adjustable. No buttons. No zippers. It looks like a reversible with the orange dot print peeking out, but it is actually the facing matching with the pockets. You could make it reversible as Lisa's dress (see yesterday's post) if you want. Ryoko is happy with how it turned out, but only thing she would do differently next time is to skip fusing the facing. It's just not needed, she said. Thank you, Ryoko and keep sewing!
