Mommy and Me Striped and Floral Shirts | January Sewing Challenge

Matching shirts are fun for mama and girl, but hard to find. So why not just make them! They can be easy and quick to make. 
 I really love sewing for my kiddos. There are so many fun and cute things to make for them. Like these dinosaur sweat shirts or these soft play cube toys or this Alphabet matching game, I could go on (see more HERE). But I decided I needed to do a little more sewing for myself, so I made a personal goal in January to sew something for me every month (you can see past things I've made for me HERE).


As you may have noticed, it's now March, but I did actually make these shirts in January and I ended with just a little extra fabric so I decided to make one for my little girl as well and it's so fun to match with her!
My shirt is actually a refashion. I got this striped turtle neck at the thrift store when I was pregnant that was two sizes to big for me. I cut the neck off and used it as an maternity shirt. It was perfect, but now that I'm not pregnant anymore I thought it'd be fun to chance the sleeves up. I had about a 1/2 yard of some floral knit to do so with.

How to refashion any shirt with new sleeves

I simply cut the sleeves of the striped shirt and used them as a pattern for new sleeves. Then I added the new floral sleeves into the striped shirt. SO EASY!! I also made a neckline with the floral fabric.

For the little girl shirt:

I grabbed one of her shirts and traced an outline of her shirts on the floral fabric. I did the same for the sleeves but used the sleeves from the striped shirt for her sleeves. I actually ended up making her shirt just a little to tight on her, so I cut up the sides and added a strip of scrap stripe knit fabric I had. It turned out so cute!!
