Well, yesterday my dd (8) headed back to school after spring break. Our weather here has been a bit testy and it was cold. She broke her arm 3 weeks ago, so she has had it in a cast; but being inside I didn't worry about her getting too cold in short sleeves. As I checked our weather, I found it was 48 degrees. (cold for So Cal). So she had to wear her 13 yo sister's long sleeve shirt just so her cast would fit.
I rushed out yesterday and found a pattern with loose, billowy sleeves (thank goodness that is in style right now and available). I made one last night. And have at least 2 more planned for this week. She was so grateful. And the fit is wonderful.
Here is a link to her shirt. The pattern is Simplicity 5038:

How adorable for an 8 year old. Bet she will just love it.

Perfect solution. When my daughter broke her collar bone ponchos were all the rage. Thank goodness, because she had to wear a brace and foam padding. This is the "first" time ponchos were popular. Many moons ago.

Thanks everybody :bg:
Its actually just a $2.00 cotton from Walmart. Whole shirt cost less than $4.00. A huge relief because I really couldn't afford to go out and buy a bunch of shirts like this. SO glad I can make them.
Mary, I am glad ponchos are back in style. I made each of my dds one in the fall, and it sure is coming in handy right now-lol!
