Chinese Character Shirts

Chinese Character Shirts

Ok, so I’m only planning to wear these Chinese character shirts as pajamas but they have already proven to be effective. These shirts arrived a week ago. My two littles were very curious so  we went over the characters on each shirt before I threw them into the laundry hamper. Yesterday I pulled them out of the dryer and my 2 year old points at her shirt and says, “妹妹抱抱”. Win!

The shirts are a custom order from Vista Print for $5.99 each (women’s shirt $8) with a promo code. These are digitally printed shirts and do not have the same quality as screen printed garments. I’ve washed and dried them once and the colors are a little faded, but still worth it for the price if my kids can learn all 11 individual characters. Since these shirts are custom you can type in any characters or upload your design.

As for size, I am wearing the Anvil Women’s T-shirt in XS. For reference I am 5’1″, 100 lbs and normally wear size xxs or 00.  I expected it to be big but the shirts run a tad small and ended up fitting just right. My husband is wearing the Fruit of the Loom heavy cotton T-shirt in Large. This again ran small. My son is currently in between a 4T and 5T so I ordered the Fruit of the Loom Heavy Cotton Youth T-Shirt in a small. The size chart indicates this is equivalent to a size 6-8.  My daughter wears a 3T and is wearing the XS small kids intended for age 2-4. Both kids shirts are very big.

Below are direct links to each product.

Please note that I am not affiliated with Vista Print. I got this brilliant idea from another Facebook group member, Betty of Chalk Academy. She offers so much valuable information and helpful tips on her site.

    Hi Jeanne thank you for sharing! I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, but my trouble was typing Chinese characters into the VistaPrint website for customization. Shall I try using PC or can I use my iPad? I appreciate any thoughts you might have!
