The Eclipse sewing pattern is an amazingly versatile child T-Shirt and Dress pattern. There are options for for both t-shirt and dresses with long sleeves, short sleeves, gathered sleeves and a self-lining cross over hood.
Light/medium weight knit fabrics such as cotton/Lycra jersey are perfect for this child t-shirt sewing pattern.
The pattern goes from prem./small newborn right up to age 12 and is suitable for enthusiastic beginners.
Eclipse T-Shirt and Dress is the sister pattern to the Emi so the sleeves and skirt can be mix-and-matched and used with each other. As a result you can create a huge number of different designs from just two patterns. Use the free Amber or Lunar patterns with the Eclipse skirt to create even more options!
An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish but importantly a sewing machine is all you need for all options.

This is perfection. One pattern covers tops for both my son and daughter, I was nervous about the cute gathered sleeves as I’ve only been seeing for 6months but it was so well explained and simple that it worked first time. Lots of great options as always.
