Bailey adores this deer print and was so excited to try it on. It fits her really great. I just used a regular knit jersey with the deer shirt. The pattern says to use 1.5 yards of fabric for size 5, but I was able to cut it out of one yard.
The pattern recommends using sweater knit (or something with a four-way stretch). I had this black and white striped sweater knit in my stash and on a whim, decided to make another bimaa. I’m so glad I did.
I can’t decide which one I like better, and neither could Bailey. I had her change out of the deer print and she said she was going to change back into it after pictures. But once I had her in the stripes, she said she wanted to wear the stripes for that day, and the deer the next day.
