The Half a Decade Shirt

Someone in our house has just turned "5". She just lost her first tooth, too, so that makes 2 milestones in one week. Her tooth was very loose for several days, and she kept telling us there was a piece of metal wiggling around in her mouth, but she never swallowed it. She ignored us (as 5 year olds do) whenever we explained it was actually her tooth. Well, at supper, the tooth came out. She held it up and exclaimed, "It was my tooth after all!"

Even though I didn't really need back and side views of the shirt, Grace is used to going through the motions of modeling her new clothes for the camera.

I appliqued the number 5 on the front. Now that I'm looking at it, it turned out kind of huge. I like contrast of the fabrics I used, although I was really unsure about the combo until it was stitched up.

Mint green interlock:
Pink polka dotted cotton jersey: Hobby Lobby.
Pattern: Viserrys T-shirt (Ottobre 4-2008-11).


  1. Oh! Happy birthday wishes! I love this shirt--it's so adorable!

  2. Happy Birthday to your 5 year old :) Love the tooth comment - kids think and say the funniest things. The shirt is fabulous - love the colour combo.

  3. Happy Birthday to your daughter...lovely top!

  4. The fabric combo is adorable and I love the extra long cuffs on this. Happy birthday to Grace!
