Bow t-shirts

Bright, exaggerated soft bows. Two colour ways both on grey marl. I love bright coloured childrens clothes, patterns and rainbow colours. Of course im still partial to a more sombre palette and the refined details that may be found in clothes such as Chloe for Kids but id rather my daughters clothes be playful and fun. She can grow up later, when its time!
This was meant as a great party T-shirt or just for everyday play. It is one to get you noticed and looks great with a plain cardigan. The bows took a lot of practice to get right and experimentation with different fabrics and stiffeners. They needed to be able to hold their shape but not be hard to touch. In the end, a thin layer of wadding looked best and gave them a lovely smooth appearance.
