Hello!

 

I want to make old t-shirts into 12mo size baby kimono or side-tie tops, short sleeve or long sleeve.

 

Has anyone done this?

 

I need a reaaalllly easy pattern because I'm sew-phobic and am a total beginner.

 

I cannot find any side-tie shirts for older babies that are not ridiculously expensive :(

 

Help!!


Happy and in love with my family!
