Originally I was going to make this top for Will. It's been a while since Will has had something made for him. When I was showing Will the fabric, Mollie piped up that she wanted one too.
The pattern is Farbenmix Hilde. I really like Hilde. The cut of the top is quite straight, so it works well for boys or girls. It also has lots of potential for mixing up fabrics.
The main fabric is "vintage" robot knit from Sewzanne's Fabrics. I've also used Stella cotton/spandex knit in Indigo and blood red.
I used my coverstitch machine to do topstitching. It was a bit tricky to get it just right since the right side of the fabric was facing down. Overall I was happy with the results.The kids are excited to have matching shirts. Mollie wants to wear her new shirt to school on Monday.
