My daughter is ten, and we don’t always agree on her clothing choices anymore.  She wears uniforms during the school year, so it’s often not an issue until summer arrives.  She’d rather be in running shorts and a T-shirt, and there are some occasions where I just need to her look a little more pulled together.  Since this was a fashion choice that we both loved, I thought I’d share with those of you who are in the same boat with your tweens!

The T-shirt is just a plain cotton one–they go on sale 4 for $10 all the time at our local craft store.   The pocket is sewn from a scrap of navy chevron fabric, and I had it monogrammed in lime green with her initials.  I bought this custom-made at a local store for under $20, but it would be so easy and inexpensive to DIY the pocket. You could do the contrasting pocket without the monogram, or if you have a Silhouette or a Cricut, you could cut a monogram and heat-press it onto the pocket using iron-on vinyl.  


We decided to make her a pair of flip flops using strips of the same navy chevron fabric, although ribbon works, too.  You can read my EASY tutorial on that {here}.  It’s a great summer craft project for girls.

She can pair this T shirt with white shorts of capris and satisfy her need to be comfortable and my need for her to put her best foot forward.  And, it just goes to prove my point that you really can monogram anything! 🙂
