Building the shirt was alright... I took a T shirt my mom bought but never wear.
....But... I ended up with a tad of ruffles at the top of the sleeves (they were too big apparently!). Not really boyish. Also my lack of green thread made me use brown one, and that chocolate mint cake idea came right away... So, as it wouldn't fit a boy anymore, I decided to go for it and make it as girly as I could.
I've put bows on the top of the sleeve to hide the imperfection... my pattern wasn't made very well and it showed...
I've cut the letter free hand, as well as the cake.
(Choco Menthe stands for Chocolate mint in French, as you would have assumed...)
I've even made myself a tag!
I'll update my post with "Action" pictures tomorrow..but I bet It will be too big for my daugther...

Update: Here's the clearest action shot I could get:
Not particularly flattering, but at least my daugther does not look like a little devil. It's a tad too big, will be perfect this summer!
