Ahh… summer. Are you here yet? Though technically it isn’t until June 21, my oldest is out of kindergarten already so we’re ready for all the summer here! Mr. R celebrated his last day of school wearing his newest shirt, sewn for the Get Ready for Summer Blog Tour hosted by Seams Sew Lo. I bring you… the popsicle summer tee!
It’s funny how things you create don’t always turn out how you envision, but they end up being great anyway! Such was the case for these tees. They are made using the Ellie and Mac half pipe pattern (which, by the way, is on sale right now, in addition to all patterns this whole month!). This pattern offers so much creativity with two different blocked pieces on the front. I went through several iterations before I settled on the popsicle. Lighting McQueen, sunglasses, anchors… but popsicles has an all-summer, casual, happy boy vibe to it, so it won!
