I’m so excited to be teaming up with Wee Rascals to launch their first girl’s raglan tee! Lucky for us, they are starting the girl’s line with the Abraham Lincoln print. Avery became a real fan after memorizing Mr. Lincoln, President by Alice Leedy Mason last fall for school. I love the premise behind the Wee Rascals business, “Wee Rascals was born out of a desire to see real life heroes have meaning in our kids' lives and wardrobes. Wanting something different from the mass marketing of cartoon characters, we recognized a need to present faces of real people for all kids to admire. We set out to rediscover who a SUPER hero really was and we ended up finding several along the way.”
Avery asked to sleep in her shirt the first time she put it on. These are super soft and a great lightweight knit for spring and summer.
The neon pink gives the tees the perfect girly / modern vibe.
As for the pants I sewed to complete the look, they are the Daphne pattern by Violette Fields Threads. The fabric is an oldie but a goodie from the Hope Chest line by Josephine Kimberling. For those of you who sew, any one of the Wee Rascals tees is a great addition to handmade skirts, pants, or shorts.
The pop of the neon pink Kam snaps at the leg cuffs really ties is all together.
To add a little history to this post, I took the photos at College Hill Presbyterian church around the corner from our house. General Grant and General Sherman were known to have used the church and its grounds during the Civil War.
Now, to the really good stuff. The lovely ladies behind Wee Rascals have generously offered to give away a tee of your choice to celebrate their girl’s launch. Enter to win below!
