Viewfinder Tee

I have been doing some basics sewing this week.  Basics sound blah, but it’s what we are needing right now, so basics it is!

My Sweet Pea is a riot with her fashion sense…she is one bright girl.  Sometimes she will come out of her room dressed head to toe in yellow.  Or sometimes it will be a pink shirt with green shorts.  There is no telling if she will match (like overly match) from head to toe, or if she’s a little confused on what colors coordinate.

    I love quirky style too. Mine wore a pink football jersey with a fur vest. It reminded me of 90s rappers. It was actually pretty bad though, that one. But still cute:) I’m glad to come see her cute yellow tee:)

      Thanks Amy! Thinking back to my childhood, I’m sure I was a little flighty when it came to fashion….I’m learning :)

    Your Sweet Pea is gorgeous, and I love her style. The shirt looks great on her. I love the colour, it does look very sunshiny :)

    Basics are good. They are things we all wear every day. Why not make every day special? There is no reason not to :)

    It’s super cute! I love that fun yellow flower print!
    I remember dressing head to toe in different shades of pink and look how I turned out! It’s awesome that you let her be her!
