Sew & Tell - Ume's Mama's Reversible Shirt

Little Ume's mom (sorry I didn't ask her name) grew up watching her mom (Ume's grandma) sew, but didn't pick up a needle until Ume was born. It's okay, it's not too late to learn and Ume has brought her a perfect opportunity to start sewing life. Maybe she didn't care that much about sewing because her mom sewed. She could ask her to make anything she wanted. But, now she follows her foot steps. She made her first dress! I'm sure her mom is very proud of her. I recommend this pattern for all the beginners. This is probably the easiest pattern that Peapod carries at the moment. It's like making a place mat in a dress shape. And it's reversible and adjustable at the shoulders. I think Little Ume is happy too. She said yay (maybe) with her thumbs up. Well, index finger up exactly, but she tried :-) Good job and thank you, Ume's mom!

She used the following pattern...


  1. Very, very cute! I love simple sundresses for little girls that are easy to move in, twirl, & can become jumpers, too. The reversible part is great for a quick change when the little one makes a mess.
