This is a children’s sewing pattern PDF (not the finished garment) for a T-shirt with optional short or long sleeves.
The T shirt is made in my exclusive Treasure Map fabric from Spoonflower – see fabric buying info on the details tab.
The Treasure Map fabric features a vintage map of Tretower in the Brecon Beacons (UK), painted by Robert Johnson, dated 1587 (in the public domain). The addition of hidden treasure (a scroll, crown and treasure chest) adds interest that children will love to search for.
The same pattern is used for the Brick Truck T-Shirt.
