Our church has a Fall Carnival every year for the community, and a lot of people show up in costume. We were dressed as a bowling team. Okey and I cheated a bit because, well, we were actually on a bowling team for a couple of years so we just wore our old shirts.
Using an old pillow case and some scraps, I sewed Wren’s shirt following this Small Dream Factory pattern. The size is supposed to be for a 12-18 month old boy, but it barely fit my then seven-month old girl. I had to put in a last-minute gusset-like allowance on the sleeves for her. The collar was a bit wonky, so I just made my own following this simple advice at BurdaStyle.
I liked that we used the old bowling ball bag as the diaper bag, but I think that fact was lost on everyone there which is why I’m explaining it to you here. Oh, well.
