Guest post by Kelsey Lafleur. It's week 2 of Mamma Can Do It Legacy Winter Promos! You guys aren't going to want to miss this cute little lapped baby shirt. It's paired here with the baby boy leggings pattern. This simple and easy lapped baby shirt has been newly updated and is only $3.50 this week. I can see it becoming a staple in our house. We are also a cloth diaper family, and there's nothing I love better than a longer play t-shirt with a simple cloth diaper on hot summer days for my little guy. I know I seem crazy for even thinking about summer right now, but here in southern Alabama, our winter is almost over. This pattern also has long sleeves, short sleeves, as well as the tank binding option which was not previously available. The tank binding is included in the pattern, but it does not have the picture tutorial yet so that's what I'm here to tell you about.
Tank Lapped Baby Shirt Tutorial
Note: There is a slight curved hem to the pattern, and so using the hem of this shirt will make the shirt have a straight hem instead of the intended slight curve.
Your band will be smaller than your armscyle so you will have to stretch the band as you clip around the armscyle. Since I didn't baste, I made up for it in over clipping. Sew your bands into place with a zig zag or similar stretch stitch. Your seam allowance will be 3/8ths of an inch here. I used a serger to sew mine onto the shirt.
I love it! Your little lapped baby tank is complete! I added a vinyl cut file design to mine from here. Little mister is ready for Valentine's Day now!
