Yes, I done sewed it wrong. Agin. Why can't I just listen to the pattern and do what it says?! I know how, I am just too stubborn. But still, this is a good pattern, called Charlie's Tunic from the Made by Rae blog. I did find that whole trim attachment to be a bit clumsy though. But I have been known to be be lazy on the iron. I would like to take this opportunity to praise, if not worship before this so called Rae for designing a kids shirt with the proper armscye! Yes, Rae, you did it.
Here's what it is supposed to look like (image from Made by Rae):
And here is how I botched it up good. I like to call my version (made from an old t-shirt and some pieces of a duvet cover) the "Burt Reynolds", for that more revealing, carefree look. I feel there is something more, hmmm.... biblical looking in my version too, so maybe I can re-work this into a set of nativity patterns.* Potentially lucrative! There are a lot of Christian Evangelical types out there that sew, from what I can tell. Oh wait. Maybe it's just Phinny's hand position. Asking for more Pirate's Booty, or blessing the masses? You decide.
*DO NOT use this exact idea if you are doing a set of nativity costumes, because I am almost certain there is a small linen blend in that trim, in which case, according to Leviticus, you could get yourself smote.
