This is kind of the perfect fabric for school-age kiddos. This is a pre-order up at The Fabric Cottage with numbers and letters is various colorways. I was a bit late to choose a sample to sew up, so I ended up getting the numbers in white and black. I probably would have chosen the alphabet, so I could do this quote again (cut file in the linked folder on the sidebar):
I had to think of something else to do for the numbers, so I searched for Math Memes and found this one (also in the cut file folder):
The girl is fairly good at math, and has been in advanced math at school, but she’s not a big fan of it. I was hoping that she might see the humor in it, and still give the outfit a thumbs up. You never know with a tween. Seriously, they have multiple personalities. Sometimes everything you make is fantastic, and the next time you get eyerolls so hard they hurt themselves.
She liked it this time. 🙂
The shirt is just a basic block that I have made for her. She needs shoulder coverage since the school here doesn’t allow strappy tank tops. The skirt is a skort that I have somehow just mangled the pattern drafting. I had to redo it on the fly, so I will have to redo several pieces. It all turned out pretty cute, though.
The pre-order is open until June 16th, so go check it out if you like the numbers and the alphabet. They also have a ruled paper print that would be cute, too. Kind of perfect for a back to school outfit in the fall!
