Features for your Sensory Child

  • The seams are worked on the outside so that the inside is smooth and has no scratchy itchy seam allowances or labels.
  • The  opening at the front creates a wider neckline so no struggles to pull it over the head.
  • Make the Tee shirt in recycled fabric (dad or mum’s old sweatshirt or a charity/thrift shop find), to avoid the use of stiff new fabrics and also save the planet.
