The Sheer Injustice Shirt

And now I remember why I don't make Jamie things very much: because Maia goes bat-sh*t crazy with righteous indignation. 'WHAT ABOUT ME?!' she wails, 'WHERE IS MY NEW SHIRT?!' Indeed, it is a very injust world when only 96% of things are for you.

But there we go then. A new shirt was duly made and the cosmic balance was restored. I stash-busted again with this rainbow french terry I've been hoarding. The placket is emerald green twill, again with velcro closures, and the same used as binding. As you can see, there are (store-bought) rainbow trousers to complete the ensemble.

Altogether, she is nonchalant at best but probably closer to the wrong side of louche.

  1. Far out dude. Way more than a double rainbow!

  2. very cute love it..... the top and the model!! xx

  3. LOVE it!! My 7yr old would die for those rainbows!

  4. She's adorable! The rainbow match is excellent.

  5. She looks incredibly cute in that set. And who can blame her for demanding all the sewing output when it looks that good on her:)

  6. I am soooo relieved to hear that justice was restored in your corner of Scotland. There's enough upheaval in the world today.

    And don't you feel just so smug when you match some store bought thing they already have?

  7. Very cool, and I learned a new word - louche!

  8. I would LOVE a rainbow outfit! I'd wear it to work every day!

  9. Very cute. I love the idea of using velcro for the closure, so much easier for little ones.
