A Girly Field Trip Tee

I was excited when I saw the Oliver + S Field Trip Tee and Pants pattern released, but mostly excited in anticipation of using it if I ever had a little boy.  Then I decided I'd give it a go as a girl pattern.  I had two coordinating knits in my stash that I got from Girl Charlee (I love this site for knits), that I had already used for other projects for Miss S. 

I loved the little floral and figured it would make a pretty girly looking tee shirt, in spite of the more boyish styled tee.  I actually love the raglan sleeve style shirts, and I love it on girls.  I was pretty happy with how this turned out.

It was a really fast, really easy sew.  It literally went together in about an hour, start to finish.  My pocket topstitching is not perfect, but oh well, right?  The knit is also a little off grain, which makes the pocket look a little crooked, but I'm pretty okay with that.  I've got at least another version in mind, and maybe more, since it is SUCH a quick, easy and fun sew.


  1. I think it is the perfect girly tshirt - great fabric choices :-)

  2. wait, what?? a boy pattern??!! oh my goodness, i am imagining 5 little matchy shirts!! i'm kind of getting excited :) and how very, very cute in a girly form! well done!

  3. The top is adorable in those 2 fabrics! I love the little pocket.:)

  4. CUTE! I agree, this is such a quick and fun sew. Made it twice for my son and now I want to make one for my daughter after seeing yours! :)
