Embroidered Death Star Snappy Tee – Muse of the Morning Blog Tour

I hope you’re prepared for some Star Wars love, because I am in a geeky mood this month! Today I am a stop on Muse of the Morning‘s blog tour, and I sewed up the Billy Bright Eyes Snappy Tee in a size 2T {this does mean I received the pattern for free – but my opinions are my opinions regardless}. Chrissy, the designer behind the blog and shop, gave us our choice of pattern and I knew I wanted to try out this cute little top. My son has a gigantic head, so snap plackets help make getting dressed less of a struggle. I used a fabulous free embroidery pattern from Wild Olive to embroider the Death Star applique on some t-shirt scraps (I did enlarge it about 30%), you can find that file on her blog here.

My son has a gigantic head so I’m always looking for ways to accommodate his noggin. The snap placket does just that; he loved it because I wasn’t wiggling the neckline over his ears like usual.

The pattern instructions were clear and the pieces came together easily, I had no issues assembling or sewing. I did have some fit hiccups on the sleeve; I think with a bit more give in the fabric it wouldn’t have been a problem but I did have to really stretchhh to make it work.

I did add a band at the bottom for extra length; my son has a serious case of toddler-belly and it helps keep him covered!

  Perfect for a boy on the go!

    That death star is great! The reverse applique look surrounding it really helps it stand out too. :)

      Thanks Ajaire! I like playing around with applique — and it uses up scraps which I know you’re a pro at 😉
