SORRY FOR THE BAD PHOTOS.. 
HERE IN ITALY THERE’S NO SUN THESE DAYS, ONLY COLD AND RAIN….

A few days ago LaPatata looks at me and says, “I want a pink shirt with a skirt!
And if the child asks, what does the mother do? Sews!
So I went to rummage trough the heap (er, the heaps, because there is not one only, eh!) of clothes waiting to be refashioned and I caught, in order: a purple shirt, a cyclamen one, a couple of legs cut to a pink suit that was too short (already become a pair of shorts) and a piece of printed jersey … A pair of scissors, the serger and … 
Ready! Steady! Go!

Qualche giorno fa LaPatata mi guarda e fa: “Voglio una maglia rosa con la gonna!”
E se la bimba chiede, cosa fa la mamma? Cuce!!!
Così sono andata a rovistare nel mucchio (ehm, nei mucchi, perchè non ce n’è mica uno solo, eh!) di abiti in attesa di refashion, ed ho pescato, nell’ordine: una maglietta lilla, una ciclamino, un paio di gambe tagliate ad una tuta rosa ormai troppo corta (già diventata shorts) e un ritaglio di jersey stampato… Un paio di forbici, la tagliacuci e… Pronti! Attenti! Via!

This is what I had before – Questo è ciò con cui sono partita.
I have separated along the seams t-shirts pieces, saving the neckline in jersey rib and cutting bottom edge less than ten cm.
Ho separato lungo le cuciture le magliette, salvando il collo in maglina a costine e tagliando il bordo inferiore ad una decina di cm.

Everything cut – Tutto tagliato
Then I cut out the various parts of the model and I assembled them, leaving as a last step the curled skirt, getting two top-minidress that LilPotato decided to wear straightaway…
Result: LilPotato is happy, MammaNene as well, and two T-shirts have been eliminated from the heap of old clothes to reuse somehow!

Here is the pattern I created for the long top, with raglan sleeves (size 4 years) … maybe someone could use it! (You have to add a “skirt”piece, with high as you desire and long from 1,5 to 3 times the bottom of the top circumference.) Seam allowances 1 cm included!
There’s a wonderful tutorial made by Melissa (Melly sews) about how to sew on together the raglan shirt you can follow!

Poi ho ritagliato le varie parti del modello e le ho assemblate, lasciando per ultimo il gonnellino arricciato, ottenendo due maglie-miniabito che LaPatata ha subito deciso di indossare…
Risultato: LaPatata è felice, la MammaNene pure, e altre due magliette sono state eliminate dalla pila degli abiti smessi da riutilizzare chissà come!
Ecco qui il cartamodello che ho creato per la maglietta lunga, con maniche raglan (taglia 4 anni)… magari a qualcuno può servire! (Per la “gonnellina”, aggiungere un reattangolo lungo a piacere e largo da 1,5 a tre volte la circonferenza del bordo inferiore del top.) I margini di cucitura di 1 cm sono inclusi!
Per asssemblare i vari pezzi potete seguire il bellissimo tutorial fatto da Melissa (Melly Sews).

    New GFC follower from the Aloha blog hop. I am so glad I found your blog. I have been considering buying a used serger for sewing, but am so scared on how and what I would use it for. Thank you for the project ideas!
