KCW Oct 2015: Upcycled Transformers Tee

Yesterday, for day 3 of Kid's Clothes Week I made Noah this Transformers tee out of an old T-shirt of mine. (Yes, you read that right, it was originally my tee – back in the late 90s/ early 00s it was kind of cool to wear a tight fitting tee with kid’s cartoon characters on… in an ironic/ nostalgic/ talking point kind of way … or maybe that was just me.)

A few years back, I went to put it in the op shop pile but had a change of heart and instead it went in the repurpose pile. It’s lucky I did too because Noah really loves transformers!

Today was overcast and not the best for taking photos. Because of that it’s hard to tell from the photos (particularly the modelled shots) that I used a lovely minty fabric for the sleeves and the neckline. The original top was solid blue. I was also able to save time using the original hem of the top, since it was an upcycle – bonus!

The pattern I used was the four seasons tank and tee pattern by Little Kiwis Closet, one I use a lot! I made a size 6 for my little almost 7 (!) year old.

The best thing about this top is how much Noah loves it (note the adoring gaze below)… but then again he was pretty excited about our ‘late night PJ adventure’ when we raced off to the after hours pharmacy for Nit shampoo* the other night … so he is rather easily pleased!
