Chevron Knit Shirts and Chevron Knit Giveaway

My favorite online shop to buy knit is Girl Charlee, hands down. I think I found them originally through a Google search and browsed their site for a really long time. Their fabric is so fun to look through!
Things I love about Girl Charlee:
  • They have beautiful knits with lots of great prints. 
  • If you love striped knit fabric, this is definitely the place to find them
  • Their site is easy to navigate. (huge plus for me!)
  • Most of the fabric is under $7 a yard, and lots are under $6!
  • I love that you can buy half yard cuts. That is all you need for most little kid clothes!
  • The fabric is soft and is sewn easily. I love working with their fabric!
  • I love that they show every shipping option, so you can choose the cheapest.
Well for Spring, Girl Charlee has a line of Chevron Knit Fabric! Can there be anything better? I was sent some to try out, and I just loved it! I came up with a shirt for myself, and a shirt for Henry. 
Boys can wear chevron, right? This is the first item finished in Henry's Spring/Summer line (which is going to involve chevron!). I made Henry a v-neck shirt with some zigzag seam piecing, and to make it masculine, I added some hand drawn zigzag lines. The sleeves are slightly longer than regular sleeves, more like half sleeves to fit in all the zigzags! It is too big for him now, so that it will fit him in the coming months.
I made a raglan shirt for myself with a blocked diagonal piece at the bottom. I love the gray and the purple paired together. I was also sent a purple chevron sample which was the same purple as the fabric I was using, so I decided to add a little pocket on the side. I think it's the perfect detail that is the finishing touch.
You get a chance to win some chevron knit fabric in the color of your choice! This giveaway is only open to US residents. Good luck! If you don't win, Girl Charlee is also offering a 10% discount to all my readers! Just use the discount code flight10 when checking out!

  8. I'm on a teal kick right now, so I'd go with the teal on white for sure. But the Tiffany blue, the watermelon, and the coral are also calling my name.

  9. Those T-shirts look great! That's some fancy seam work on Henry's. I've been eyeing those chevron knits, especially the grey, but postage to the UK is soooo expensive now. I'm sure I'll break eventually though :)
