Perfect Layering Tee

Have you seen the little adorable new Wellie Wisher Dolls from American Girl?  Kessa got one from my husband's family for her birthday and her first request was for me to make the doll more clothes.  When Nicole said she was making some patterns the Wellie Wishers I was all over it!  The Perfect Layering tee for girls and dolls was first up on the list.  It comes in tank, short, 3/4, and long sleeves, has regular and tunic lengths with options for hems or bands and it looks great!  

This shirt is tight fitting and perfect for laying under things...or wearing alone if that floats your boat!  The black one is the tunic length with 3/4 length sleeves (and I added some fun heat transfer of course!)

There are also two different options for finishing the neck.  You can do a traditional neck band (as I did on the black tunic) or you can do a binding like I did on the aztec print shirt.  

This is the hemmed length with short sleeves.  It's very easy to mash sizes too!  Since it's such a tight fitting shirt I made sure to take new measurements of Kessa and make the shirt accordingly.  I did a 7 chest graded out to an 8 hips and an 8 length (for my 10 year old.  :p )

and how about some bottoms???  Cole's Corner also released a basic bottom pattern for Wellie Wishers that included pant, capri, short, and shorty short lengths.  They're SUUUUPer fast to make too.  I cut and sewed 4 pairs (one in each length) in probably 30 minutes the other day.

So, what are you waiting for???  Go buy them!  :p  I'm ready to make the girls more of these in waffle knit to wear under their t-shirts this winter.
