I made a polo shirt and polo shirt dress.
Last year, I bought the dark navy and bright green knits for making a polo shirt, but I couldn't find a good fabric for the collar. It seems any color of fabric doesn't match these fabrics! I changed my mind and used a fabric from my stash.
This dress is very good for hot summer!
This shirt looks like basic polo shirt but I made it with McCall's 6600!
Can you see the kitty is hiding? I named the shirt "Hello-Kitty polo".
This pattern is Liberty of London and Hello Kitty combined, name is "Kakurenbo" (It means hide-and-seek). This fabrics are sold from Liberty Japan. I really love the Hello Kitty! If I were a girl, I would make the dress with that Hello-Kitty fabric! This polo shirt makes me smile when I wear it ^_^
I changed the designs a lot. I omitted to make the back yoke. I took up the shoulders by an inch and both sides of bodice by a few inches. Many different styles can be arranged from this basic pattern. I think it's a great pattern.
Fabric: 60" 1 3/8 (Navy), 60" 1 1/8(Green)
Total time spent: 8 hours
