Time for some Pickles


Sometimes there is a t-shirt pattern that just nails it. When the designer has really put in the hard yards to get the fit right, provide plenty of options, and get the instructions working just so.

Here's on of those patterns .... Pickle Toes Patterns have started the release of their Pickle Tees.



The first version has already been released, and is available FOR FREE!!! from the Pickle Toes Patterns Facebook Group. It's called the Fried Pickles Tee, and has long and short sleeve options in sizes 2/3 to 16/18.

But there's so much more. If you've got skinny kids like me, or want a bucket more options there's the Dill Pickles Tee in sizes 2-18, and the Cornichon Pickles Tee in sizes NB to 24 months.



So what exactly are the options?? I've made a list:

  • Regular or slim fit (I'm a big fan of the slim fit for my kiddos)
  • Straight hem or bands (for sleeves and bottom of the shirt)
  • Long, short or 3/4 sleeves
  • Tee or tunic length
  • Hood - banded or fully lined
Time has been tight lately, so I didn't dive too deeply into the options. But I love the look the band at the bottom of the tee on this one (the blue on these bands is totally my favourite blue ever).



Miss 5 has a thing about wearing 'plain' clothes. So a patterned interlock was great for this one.



The pattern is super fast to sew up, and a great fit on my kids. This is definitely going to be a staple in their wardrobes.

The pattern is available via the Pickle Toes Patterns shop. And if you're on the fence with this one, make sure you grab a copy of the Free Fried Pickles pattern (via Facebook for now), and try it out.
