      Great refashion! Would you mind if I shared a photo and linked to your blog in an upcoming round-up post of what folks are making with my patterns? Warmly,
      Meg

      Thanks! I'd be flattered! Your patterns have pretty much taught me to sew. I'm afraid I'm not much of a blogger but you are more than welcome to link to these photos.

      I have a couple of t-shirts from my husband's festival that I really wanted to make into t-shirts for my little one. Was the tour info on your original shirt sideways anyway? If I did the same from the t-shirts I have then the fabric would be sideways if that makes sense. Just wondering how that would turn out!

      The tour info was not sideways on the original shirt. I made the front of the shirt the same orientation as the original and turned the pattern piece sideways on the back. It works either way as long as your pattern piece fits. The stretch is different but it still has enough for it to be comfortable. Good luck!
