I love making my daughter’s Christmas dress each year. There are so many fun things you can do with girls dresses and my daughter usually has a few ideas of her own. Boys, however, are harder! My boys are NOT into suits and ties. They’re happiest in shorts and t-shirts. On Sundays, they will grudgingly put on a polo shirt and some “dressy” shorts (aka not knit gym shorts). So, a couple years ago, I made them Christmas shirts with ties attached.
Last year, I cut the sleeves off the long sleeve T to make a shirt for my youngest and I’m not sure my middle child had a Christmas shirt…bad mom. *blush* This year, I decided to do the same thing, except I made T-shirts too.
I sewed them on using a decorative stitch on my machine, but a zigzag would work too. I personally like the slightly frayed look around the edges.
